Expected Changes and Strategy:

  • A couple of changes could be made for this fixture, after Wanderers fell to a 3-1 defeat in the last encounter.
  • Natta, who started as the centre back against Melbourne City could be replaced by P. Cancar on Wednesday.
  • Traore, Aquilina and Gordon should however retain their places in defence. The experienced duo of S. Ugarkovic and K. Baccus start as the holing midfielders.
  • Ogawa failed to capitalize on an opportunity against Melbourne City, and could be replaced by A. Lopane on the left side of midfield.
  • Meanwhile, J.Troisi, R. Najjarine and D. Petratos will hold their places in attack.

Injury Report and Unavailability:

  • Rai Marchan’s head injury means he is the only player who is out injured.
  • J. Brimmer collected a red card against Newcastle Jets, which means he will be out on the sidelines.

Expected Changes and Strategy:

  • Any changes in defence are unlikely, as Melbourne Victory defended pretty well despite being 1-man down for almost an entire half.
  • J. Brillante’s suspension gives a big headache to the manager, as he could change his formation to a 4-3-3 for this clash.
  • This means J. Brimmer could drop in midfield, alongside L. Broxham. Also, C. Ikonomidis will be drafted into the playing 11 to replace J. Brillante.
  • F. Margiotta, M. Rojas and B. Folami should be the attacking three for the visitors.
