A double blow for the All Whites ahead of the upcoming football World Cup qualifiers against Fiji.

Skipper Winston Reid has been ruled out of the home and away qualifiers with a groin injury picked up in West Ham's loss to Leicester City.

Reid will have a scan today to reveal the extent of the damage.

Chris Wood will captain the side in Reid's absence.

Meanwhile striker Monty Patterson has also been ruled out with a hamstring injury and will be replaced by the Wellington Phoenix's Alex Rufer.

The first match is in Fiji on Saturday.
