TEAM NEWS: FBK returns for City visit

We have named our 18-man squad to face Melbourne City in Sunday evening's Hyundai A-League Round 19 clash at Suncorp Stadium.

Dynamic attacker Fahid Ben Khalfallah returns to the squad after serving a one-match suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in the Round 17 win against Perth Glory.

Versatile defender Jacob Pepper has also been named in the side as has fan-favourite Ivan Franjic.

The Roar and City have taken a win apiece in two previous meetings this season with Brisbane having the last laugh in our last meeting back in Round 7.

A third straight Hyundai A-League win for John Aloisi's side would consolidate our place in the top six.
