Goalkeepers Brianna Davey (Melbourne Victory) and Casey Dumont (Sydney FC) will be sidelined for three and six matches, respectively, after suffering injuries in Round 6.

Davey is set to miss the next three games after sustaining a knock to her shin in the first half of the Victory's 1-1 draw with Brisbane Roar.  Davey was eventually substituted at half time.

Reserve goalkeeper Cassandra Dimovski, who has started on five occasions, is expected to replace Davey in their matches against Canberra United (25 October), Adelaide United (October 29) and Perth Glory (2 November).

Victorian Premier League 'keeper Tori Snelleksz (Bundoora United) has been signed as a short term injury replacement.

The depth of Victory will be tested in the coming weeks with central defender Emma Checker and forward Beattie Goad also set to miss two matches as they prepare for the AFC U19 Championship qualifiers with the Young Matildas.

Meanwhile Sydney FC custodian Casey Dumont has confirmed that she will be unavailable for the second placed Sky Blues for the next six weeks.


Dumont suffered a number of knocks in the weekend's clash with Perth Glory resulting in the Sydney custodian being stretchered off just past the hour mark.

Manly United goalkeeper Alyssa Harris is expected to deputise with the period.  The 2014 Women's Premier League 1 Goalkeeper of the Year Harris, who played 30 minutes last week, has big gloves to fill but will be assisted by the protection of an experienced backline that has conceded just 3 goals this season; the best defensive record in the W-League.
