Sydney FC striker Mark Bridge will return home on Saturday morning to seek treatment on a hip flexor injury sustained in their 3-1 Asian Champions League loss to the Suwon Bluewings.

Bridge left the field in the 79th minute of Tuesday's match in Korea and will miss Sydney's final Group H game against Kashima Antlers in Tokyo next Tuesday.

Sydney are out of contention for the ACL knockout stage after their loss to Suwon.
