Ins & Outs | Semi Final Team News

Ufuk Talay has named his squad for the first leg of this season’s Isuzu UTE A-League Semi Finals against Central Coast Mariners.

The Sky Blues will host the Premiers at Allianz Stadium this Friday night before following up with the second leg the following week in Gosford.

Unfortunately, Joe Lolley will miss the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury which was confirmed earlier this week.

The Englishman has been influential this season and while his absence is sure to be felt, there is plenty of options for Ufuk Talay to use in his place.

Luke Brattan, despite hobbling off against Macarthur, is included in the squad and trained with the group this week.

Joe Lolley is out for the rest of the season

With Lolley in the Outs column, Matthew Scarcella, Mitch Glasson and Wataru Kamijo are all included in the extended squad for this first leg.

Nathan Amanatidis (quad) and Gus Hoefsloot (knee) remain sidelined due to injury.
