Josep Gombau has named his squad for Saturday’s Hyundai A-League Round 25 match against Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park.
There are two additions to the squad, with Josh Risdon returning from international duty with the Socceroos and Marcelo Carrusca re-joining the side after sitting out last round through injury. Finals football is on the line, with the sixth-placed Wanderers travelling to Melbourne for the second consecutive week to take on the fourth-placed Victory.
Both sides are coming off losses last week, with the Wanderers going down 3-0 to Melbourne City, while the Victory will be hoping to bounce back from a 1-0 loss against Perth Glory.
The Wanderers will be desperate to pick up points to keep the chasing Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory out of the top six, while Victory will want to keep their hold on a home final.
Saturday will mark the third meeting between the Wanderers and the Victory this season, following Round 5’s 1-1 draw at Etihad Stadium and the Victory’s 3-0 win in Round 18 at ANZ Stadium.
