TEAM NEWS: Great Dane returns

For the first time in Hyundai A-League season 2017/18, Danish international Thomas Kristensen has been named in our 18-man squad.

The Dane is yet to feature in the Hyundai A-League since picking up an injury during the off-season, but is in line to make his long-awaited return against Melbourne Victory at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday (6pm KO).

Kristensen joins the squad in place of attacker Eric Bautheac, who was forced off during the first half of last week's clash on the Gold Coast.

Fahid Ben Khalfallah is also in contention to play his first Hyundai A-League game since Round 8 against his former club.

Three points on Sunday night would consolidate the Roar's place inside the top six.
