Hayden Foxe has named his squad for Sunday’s Hyundai A-League Round 4 match against Newcastle Jets at McDonald Jones Stadium on Sunday.
The match is also part of a double header, with the Wanderers Westfield W-League side playing the Jets in their season opener at 2:30pm.
There are two changes to the squad, with Jack Clisby and Jaushua Sotirio being promoted to the extended squad.
Jerrad Tyson and Steven Lustica remained sidelined with injury while Marc Tokich will be away on international duty with the Young Socceroos.
The Wanderers and the Jets both come into this match having enjoyed undefeated starts to their Hyundai A-League campaigns.
The Jets are flying high at the moment with seven points from a possible nine after their 2-1 win over Brisbane Roar last week, while the Wanderers are sitting on five points after their 2-2 draw in the Sydney Derby on Saturday.
The Wanderers will also be hoping to bounce back after being knocked out of the Westfield FFA Cup on Tuesday against Adelaide United.
The Red & Black will be buoyed by their impressive record in Newcastle—the Wanderers they have never lost a Hyundai A-League fixture in the Hunter.
In the three meetings between the two sides last season, the Wanderers won on two occasions—a 2-0 win in Round 16 and a 3-0 win in Round 25—with the points being shared in Round 3’s 2-2 draw.
