Brisbane Roar young gun Hayley Raso will be monitored this week following the concussion she sustained in Saturday-s semi-final win over her former club Canberra United.

Raso, who joined the Roar in the Westfield W-League off-season, was substituted from the field of play following a nasty head clash with Canberra player Ashleigh Sykes just before the half-time break.

Head Coach Belinda Wilson said her involvement in Sunday-s Grand Final against Melbourne Victory would be made later in the week.

“Hayley-s feeling much better now than she did on Saturday night,” Wilson said.

“She-s been checked by the club doctor and she-s okay so she-ll do non-contact training sessions tomorrow and Wednesday.

“If she comes through the week with no issues, she will be up for selection for the Grand Final.”

Raso has played a big role her first Westfield W-League season at Brisbane Roar, playing all 12 regular season matches and scoring four times in the process.
