HAL: Ins & Outs for Sunday’s game against Perth


Josep Gombau has named his squad for Sunday’s Hyundai A-League Round 18 match against Perth Glory at nib Stadium.

There are four additions to the squad, with Brendan Hamill returning from his one-week suspension, Jaushua Sotirio being promoted, and Jonathan Aspropotamitis and Keanu Baccus returning from international duty. 

Youngsters Lachlan Scott and Tass Mourdoukoutas make way. 

The meeting will mark the first between the two sides since Round 1, where the Wanderers claimed a 2-1 win at Spotless Stadium thanks to goals from Oriol Riera and Jumpei Kusukami.

Both sides come into the match on the back of defeats, with the Wanderers going down 3-0 loss to Melbourne Victory in Round 17, while Perth were bested 3-2 by Brisbane Roar.

Despite the loss, the Wanderers still have a solid foothold on their 6th place spot, sitting three points above the 7th placed Central Coast Mariners, and with a game in hand to play against Wellington Phoenix on Sunday 11 February at ANZ Stadium

Meanwhile Perth will be aiming to snap a five-game losing streak, with their last victory coming in a 2-1 against Brisbane Roar back in Round 12.
