Brisbane Roar shot stopper Jamie Young has made a return to our 18-man squad for Friday’s State v State clash against Sydney FC at Suncorp Stadium.
The Roar gloveman, who missed the side's last match against Melbourne Victory, is one of four returning players for Friday’s match alongside returning Olyroo Nicholas D’Agostino, Aaron Reardon & Charles Lokoli-Ngoy.
D’Agostino returns after spending the last two weeks away with the Young Socceroos squad that qualified for 2020 AFC U-23 Championship Thailand.
D’Agostino’s brace in the sides 2-2 draw with Korea Republic in their final match proved crucial as the Olyroos booked their spot for January’s tournament which doubles as qualifiers for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Youngster Zachary Duncan retains his place in Darren Davies match day squad after debuting in the side's last outing against Melbourne Victory.
