Socceroos striker Scott McDonald has suffered a knee ligament injury which will reportedly keep him out of action for six to eight weeks.
Socceroos and Middlesbrough marksman Scott McDonald has suffered knee ligament damage in Borough-s 2-2 draw with Leicester City.
McDonald who has been scoring regularly for the Championship side found the net once again before struggling throughout the second half with the knee injury.
Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray confirmed the fears for McDonald-s health were accurate.
“He-ll be out for six to eight weeks, four to six weeks, take your pick,” Mowbray said.
“He-s desperately unhappy in there, and it-s another big loss for us.”
McDonald had scored in five of his last eight matches and was hopeful of a Socceroos recall for the upcoming match with Saudi Arabia on February 29 at Melbourne-s AAMI Park.
