For the first time this Westfield W-League season, fan favourite Hayley Raso has been named in our 17-player squad.
We return home on Saturday to face Sydney FC in a blockbuster Westfield W-League clash at Lions Stadium (5pm KO)
Raso is in contention for her first appearance in Brisbane orange in almost a year following a lengthy recovery from a serious back injury sustained while playing in the US last year.
The 24-year-old is one of three ins for the clash with the Sky Blues with young guns Kaitlyn Torpey & Indiah-Paige Riley both promoted to the squad.
Chioma Ubogagu is unavailable for selection after being called to the England squad for their first training camp of 2019.
Gates open at 4pm this Saturday at Lions Stadium with kick-off at 5pm. Please note: Parking will be available in the Masters car park across the road from Lions Stadium.
