INJURED Ouyen United key-position players Luke Stanbrook and Todd Barker are likely facing an extended stint on the sidelines.

Stanbrook, who is understood to have twisted his knee, was the competition’s leading goalkicker going into Saturday with 19 goals, while Barker has played a key role through the ruck for the Kangas.
They will undergo scans this week to assess their injuries, but Ouyen United co-coach Andy Jardine yesterday admitted it “didn’t look good” for the key pair.
