Scans have cleared Brisbane Roar midfielder Luke Brattan of any serious damage to his knee.

Brattan was stretchered off in the 27th minute of Sunday's Hyundai A-League match against Adelaide United at Suncorp Stadium after falling awkwardly on his right knee.

While some feared the worst for Brattan scans showed no serious damage to the knee, leaving him with knee soreness.

Rocky Visconte's injury news is also positive, with scans showing the winger sustained a grade two lateral ligament injury to his ankle despite coming off after a heavy tackle late in the second half of the same game.

Both players have been ruled out of the upcoming Hyundai A-League match against Newcastle in Newcastle on Saturday and the AFC Champions League fixture against Beijing Guoan in Beijing on Tuesday.

In a further boost for Brisbane Roar Head Coach Ange Postecoglou, Mitch Nichols and Massimo Murdocca continue to show positive signs of significant improvement in their rehabilitation from a groin and shoulder injury respectively.

Their availability will be determined later in the week.
