The morning after our tight battle with the Newcastle Jets, Mike Mulvey has listed a provisional squad of players who are ready to face Adelaide. Kick-off on Sunday at Coopers Stadium is 6pm (AEDT).
There are no new injury concerns to report after Wednesday night’s #F3Derby. Tom Hiariej remains one to keep an eye on after coming off at half time. After returning from a calf injury, Hiariej is being closely managed to ensure the injury does not reoccur due to games in quick succession.
With two training sessions to complete, it’s still early days, but at this stage Mario Shabow could be set to bounce back from a minor ankle knock he took against Brisbane. Matt Simon also returns from a one-week-suspension.
The prognosis on Jake McGing’s hamstring injury could see him sidelined for 2-3 weeks, whilst Tommy Oar is expected to return to training next week.
