Melbourne Victory has suffered a huge blow with defender Adrian Leijer set to be out for up to a month after scans revealed numerous facial fractures.

Leijer was injured in Saturday's win over Central Coast Mariners, with a trip to a specialist in Melbourne on Tuesday morning revealing he has sustained a fractured eye-socket, a fractured cheekbone and a fracture to his nose.

The experienced defender suffered a blow to the face in the 94th minute in Gosford, just minutes after coming on as a substitute.
