Ins & Outs for Saturday’s match against Brisbane


Tony Popovic has named his squad for Saturday’s Hyundai A-League Round 17 match against Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium.

Two players have been added, with Steven Lustica and Bruno Piñatares joining an extended squad.

Defender Aritz Borda is the only absentee, as the Spaniard serves the last of his three-game suspension.

Dimas Brisbane Roar

New signing Terry Antonis is again named to the side after being an unused substitute in last week’s victory against Newcastle Jets and will hope to make his debut against a Roar side who’ll be looking to hold their spot in the top four.

The Wanderers and Roar meet for the third time this season, with the previous two occasions both ending in 1-1 draws.

Nichols Brisbane Roar

In the last fixture, a Dimas free-kick cancelled out Corey Brown’s opener as the sides shared the spoils at Suncorp Stadium.

Coaches Tony Popovic and John Aloisi will be looking to build on the results of last week, where the seventh-placed Wanderers beat Newcastle Jets 2-0, while Brisbane Roar won 1-0 against Wellington Phoenix.
