Hopefully I am not wrong but after viewing several repeats and slo-mos it seemed to me that Tim only picked up a soft tissue injury to the inside of his right leg above the knee. In the dying minutes while challenging for a high ball Tim was hit by his opponent's knee. It was not a foul by either player.

Australia will miss Brett Emerton due to suspension while there are doubts still surrounding a handful of players due to injuries.
Tim Cahill did not train with the squad on Wednesday after suffering a corked thigh late in the win over Bahrain, but team officials insist he will be fit to play.
Their outlook is gloomier for midfielder Jason Culina, who is battling an ongoing knee problem and seems unlikely to return.
Luke Wilkshire (groin) and David Carney (shoulder) returned to light training and are hopeful of coming back after also sitting out the final group match.

Its bascially a bad, deep bruise.

I didn't see much of Scunthorpe apart from the goals, but we haven't played with two right up front in either of the Premier League games since Tim left, and Tim was playing 'up front' although slightly deeper before he left. All this talk of 4-5-1 becoming 4-4-2 bears little relationship to where the players have been positioned on the pitch, and far more to the type of player they're perceived to be.
