Ins & Outs: Yallop returns for must-win clash

Brisbane Roar Women Head Coach Jake Goodship has locked in his extended squad ahead of Sunday’s do-or-die Westfield W-League Round 14 clash with Melbourne City.

Westfield Matildas forward Tameka Yallop is back in contention to take the field for the final game of the Westfield W-League regular season, as are defensive duo Kaitlyn Torpey and Natalie Tathem.

The Roar Women will be without Isobel Dalton for the first time this season after the 22-year-old secured a move abroad to reigning Scottish Women’s Premier League Champions Glasgow City FC.

The Roar require a victory against the premiers to keep their finals chances alive.
