Ins & Outs | Rodwell and Le Fondre return, Tobin misses out through suspension

Steve Corica and Ante Juric have named their squads for the Isuzu UTE A-League & Liberty A-League matches this Saturday at Allianz Stadium.

Men’s Squad

For Corica, he is boosted with the return of Jack Rodwell and Adam Le Fondre to the side, with Rodwell yet to see a minute of competitive action this season. It is expected that if chosen, Rodwell will be playing centre back. With the return of Adam Le Fondre, it creates further competition for places with Pat Wood in good form prior to the break.

Paulo Retre also comes back into the squad following his red card against Brisbane Roar in the Round Five clash at Moreton Daily Stadium.

Ante Juric’s side are coming off the back of a pulsating victory against Western Sydney Wanderers where they played the entirety of the second half with ten on the pitch after Nat Tobin’s dismissal for a second yellow. For the visit of Brisbane Roar, the squad will be without their captain Princess Ibini to take the arm-band in her place.
