There is sure to be at least one change to Adelaide United’s line-up for this weekend’s showdown against the Hyundai A-League champions.
There is sure to be at least one change to Adelaide United-s line-up for this weekend-s showdown against the Hyundai A-League champions.
A significant ankle injury suffered in the early stages of last Friday night-s 2-2 draw with Melbourne Victory will see defender Daniel Bowles sidelined for seven weeks, forcing Coach Josep Gombau to make at least one change to his starting eleven.
The Reds have been bolstered by the return of suspended duo Nigel Boogaard and Isaias, the pair both named in an extended squad of 18. Goal scorer Jeronimo has had a light week on the track and is rated a fifty-fifty chance to take his place in the side.
Meanwhile, fellow Argentine Marcelo Carrusca is likely to miss the next two games as he recovers from an adductor injury.
