Josep Gombau has named his squad for Saturday’s Hyundai A-League Round 26 match against Brisbane Roar at ANZ Stadium.
Three players have been added to the squad to face Brisbane with Roly Bonevacia, Mark Bridge and Tass Mourdoukoutas all promoted.
The Red & Black will be without Michael Thwaite, who received a red card in last weekend's match against Melbourne Victory.
It’s the definition of a do-or-die clash for the Wanderers who know that a loss on Saturday night will signal the end of their finals football hopes.
Last week, Brisbane took advantage of the Wanderers’ 3-1 defeat to Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park, leapfrogging the Red & Black into sixth spot on the ladder after a 1-0 win against Central Coast Mariners at Suncorp Stadium.
John Aloisi’s men now hold a two-point buffer over Josep Gombau’s side and will be keen to keep the Wanderers at bay ahead of a tricky away trip to Perth on the final day of the season.
