Ahead of Saturday afternoon’s clash with Brisbane Roar, Steve Corica has released his squad to take on the Queenslanders.
With the Girls on International Break, the Men take centre stage when they walk out to Allianz Stadium at 5pm.
With Adam Le Fondre ruled out with a hamstring injury that will see him on the sideline for a number of weeks, the door opens for Pat Wood to lead the line.
Robert Mak is also capable of playing in the number nine role and has been dispatched there previously.
There will also be opportunities for Alex Parsons and Jaiden Kucharski who have both been included in this week’s squad after impressive returns with the Sydney FC Academy side.
Rhyan Grant is also included back in the squad following his red card against Central Coast Mariners after he served his one match suspension in the Sydney Derby.
