The Central Coast Mariners have announced today that defender Storm Roux will be set for an extended stay on the sidelines after being diagnosed with a fractured fibula and ligamnt disruption.
The 23-year-old also sustained a dislocated shoulder that will be assessed later in the week.
At approximately the 58th minute against Melbourne City, Roux landed awkwardly in defence that saw the New Zealand International stretchered from the pitch and taken to hospital.
Roux stayed in Melbourne overnight with Club Physiotherapist Andrew Nealon and will return to Sydney this morning for immediate surgery on this right leg.
Given the severity of the injury however, it is unlikely Roux will return before the end of the season.
