Leeds defender Patrick Kisnorbo will miss next week's league clash at Swindon after being named in the Australia squad to face Oman in a 2011 Asian Cup qualifier.

The 28-year-old central defender will also be unavailable for Leeds' Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie with Grimsby at Elland Road next Tuesday.

Australia and Oman both have four points in Group B of the Asian Cup qualifiers, one point ahead of Kuwait and Indonesia. The top two teams from the group will progress to the finals in Qatar.

Kisnorbo, a free summer signing from Leicester, is the second Leeds player to be called up for international duty next week after Scotland Under-21 goalkeeper Alan Martin and should there be a third, the club will have the option of postponing the Swindon game.
