TEAM NEWS: Young guns, key defender promoted
Four teenagers have once again been named in our 18-man squad for tomorrow's Round 14 clash with Western Sydney Wanderers at Suncorp Stadium (6:50pm KO).
18-year-old midfielder Adam Sawyer has been promoted into the squad and is in line for his second Hyundai A-League appearance after making his debut off the bench back in Round 6 against the Victory.
Young defender Dane Ingham has also been promoted for tomorrow's clash while attackers Daniel Leck and Rahmat Akbari hold their spots.
Experienced defender Daniel Bowles also returns after missing last Saturday's clash with Adelaide United.
The Roar will be searching for consecutive wins for the first time in season 2017/18 and have already seen off Western Sydney once this season.
