Roar lose Nichols for ACL clash with Tokyo

Brisbane Roar have ruled attacking midfielder Mitch Nichols out of Tuesday night's ACL Champions League soccer clash with FC Tokyo at Suncorp Stadium.

Olyroos playmaker Nichols suffered a groin injury early in the Roar's 1-1 A-League draw with Melbourne Heart on Friday night and coach Ange Postecoglou on Monday confirmed he would not play the J-League heavyweights.

It is a blow for the A-League champions in their Asian competition opener but they will have Brazilian striker Henrique back after he was suspended for Friday's clash.

With Henrique, Brisbane's reliable regular penalty taker, watching from the stands, defender Mohamed Adnan botched the chance to win the match against the Heart with an unsuccessful injury-time penalty.

"(Henrique) was out there practising penalties (at training) today while I was crying in the background," Postecoglou joked.

FC Tokyo have been hit by injury after arriving in Brisbane on Monday morning without two key men.

Captain Yohei Kajiyama and Brazilian spearhead Lucas were ruled out following knocks in the 2-1 Japanese Super Cup loss to J-League champions Kashiwa Reysol on Saturday.
