W-League: One change for Perth squad

Craig Deans has made just the one change to this weekend’s squad set to head West and tackle the Glory.

After a foot injury restricted her from taking to the pitch in the opening three rounds of the Westfield W-League season, Renee Pountney is now in the mix for her first minutes of the 2019/20 campaign.

The attacker made a number of appearances from the bench last weekend, and could give Deans a few more options in the final third.

Tara Andrews leads the goal scoring charts for Newcastle so far this season with two.

Beyond Pountney’s potential return, the squad is as it has been the previous three outings and Deans’ side will be hoping that the trek west helps bring about a first win of the season.
