Malaysia defender Matthew Davies will miss the Harimau Malaya's Tuesday friendly encounter against Kyrgyz Republic due to a knee injury picked up in training, revealed head coach Tan Cheng Hoe.

During Malaysia's training session at the Hang Jebat Stadium on Monday evening, Goal met the Pahang captain who revealed the extent of his injury.

"It happened in training on Sunday, and the coaching staff suspect it's my medial collateral ligament (MCL). On Friday I'll undergo proper scan in Kuala Lumpur, to determine the extent; if it's grade 1 or 2.

"If it's grade 1 I'll only be out for two or weeks, but if it's grade 2 my chances to play in the AFF Championship later is year is a doubt," explained the 23-years old.

The Malaysia vs Kyrgyz Republic match will be held at the Hang Jebat Stadium, with kick off time at 8.45 pm Malaysian time.
