Squad: Saturday's clash with Perth Glory

The extended 20-man squad is an unchanged one for Ernie Merrick’s side this weekend, with all available players in the mix for game time on Saturday.

With no new injury concerns or suspensions to speak of, Ernie Merrick will again have to trim the squad down to 18 men for the clash with Perth Glory.

Ben Kantarovski is building back towards full fitness after playing a total of 67 minutes across the last two matches from the bench, and could be a chance of cracking the starting XI this weekend.

Two men who were omitted last weekend, Jack Simmons and Maki Petratos, will be working hard to press their claim for a spot in the squad.
