Tony Popovic has named his squad for Sunday’s Hyundai A-League Round 23 match against Wellington Phoenix at Spotless Stadium.
There are just two changes from the squad that drew 0-0 with Adelaide in Round 22, with Steven Lustica being promoted and Brendon Santalab returning from injury.
The Wanderers will arrive in Sydney on Friday morning following Wednesday night’s 3-2 win against FC Seoul in South Korea.
Goals from Lachlan Scott, Terry Antonis and Jaushua Sotirio sealed an invaluable three points in Group F ahead of what’s set to be another crucial game at home against the Phoenix.
The Wanderers sit in sixth place, two points ahead of the seventh-placed Wellington, and know that a will could prove significant as we head into the final five rounds of the regular season.
Sunday marks the third Hyundai A-League meeting between the two sides this season, following Round 11’s 2-2 draw at Mt Smart Stadium and the Wanderers’ Round 18 3-1 victory at Yarrow Stadium.
