TEAM NEWS: Gielnik returns for Canberra clash

For the first time this Westfield W-League season, electric attacker Emily Gielnik has been included in the Roar Women squad after returning from a stint in Norway.

Gielnik is in contention to play her 75th Westfield W-League game for the club and is the only change to Mel Andreatta's squad that secured a 1-0 victory in their last outing against Adelaide United a fortnight ago.

Gielnik has netted 28 goals during her lengthy career in the Brisbane orange and another wouldn't go astray against second-placed Canberra United with top spot a potential prize for the victor.

The two sides clash at Canberra's McKellar Park on Sunday afternoon (3:30pm KO QLD time). Live coverage on foxsports.com.au/live.

The Roar enter the Round 6 of the Westfield W-League in search of three consecutive victories and consolidation of their spot towards the summit of the ladder.
