Influential midfielder Michael McGlinchey will miss both of New Zealand's World Cup qualifying matches against New Caledonia with injury.

Wellington Phoenix playmaker McGlinchey has been ruled out of Saturday's match in Auckland and the away leg fixture on Tuesday with a knee injury which coach Anthony Hudson says was pre-existing.

Captain Chris Wood is also carrying a "niggle" but the Leeds United striker is confident of taking a full part on Saturday.
