Robert Cornthwaite will not travel with Selangor to Philippines to face Ceres FC in the opening match of 2016 AFC Cup group stage.
He has picked up a foot and ankle injury during the 1-1 draw against JDT in the first match of the season in Malaysia Super League and has not recovered in time to play against Ceres FC next Tuesday.
With the Australian absence, Selangor will have only three foreign players for the trip to Bacolod, Patrick Wleh, Andik Vermansyah and Mauro Olivi.
Selangor were drawn into group E of 2016 AFC Cup. Beside Ceres, their other opponents are Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi from Bangladesh and Tampines Rover from Singapore.
