Ins & Outs: Two key inclusions for Wanderers clash
Head Coach Warren Moon has welcomed two experienced players back into an extended 20-man squad for the big Easter Saturday clash with Western Sydney Wanderers at Moreton Daily Stadium.
As the only professional sporting team in action in Brisbane this weekend, the Roar will be out to secure three points in front of a large and vocal home crowd.
Striker Scott McDonald is in contention to feature, having rejoined training following a hamstring injury he sustained in February.
Scott Neville also comes into the mix for his first minutes since returning to the Club from a loan spell in the Indian Super League.
The pair will be looking to help Brisbane build on the 1-1 draw secured against Wellington Phoenix a fortnight ago.
Macaulay Gillesphey was sent off after receiving two yellow cards in that match and serves a one-game suspension this weekend.
