Wellington Phoenix midfielder Michael McGlinchey will miss both legs of the qualifying series due to a knee problem.

McGlinchey is one of New Zealand's most capped current players with 38 and will leave a big hole in coach Anthony Hudson's midfield.

All Whites skipper Winston Reid and veteran All Whites striker Rory Fallon have already been ruled out because of injury.

The first match against New Caledonia is at North Harbour Stadium tomorrow night.
