James Troisi sidelined with injured collarbone

Melbourne Victory forward James Troisi is expected to miss the next 3-4 weeks as he recovers from an injured collarbone.

Troisi fell heavily while contesting a header during Victory's 1-1 draw against Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.

Scans later revealed a fracture, and Troisi had surgery on Saturday to repair the damage.

Victory faces City in Round 2 of the Hyundai A-League on Saturday night at Etihad Stadium.
