It-s Harvey Norman Friday Night Football and we-re up against the league leaders to kick off Round 9. Check out who-s in the squad.

Josep has almost a full quota to choose from against Brisbane Roar - all except for Cassio who has started his rehabilitation from a ruptured hamstring tendon, while Daniel Bowles is back training with the main group but is still a week away from being available for selection after recovering from his ankle injury.

Jon McKain has overcome an illness that kept him out of the Reds- back to back Melbourne trips and has been named in an extended squad.

After three away games in succession, the assignment on the first game back at home does not get much bigger than the Roar. The players needs a big crowd behind them at home so get down to Coopers Stadium on Friday night and cheer on the Reds.

Gates open at 5.30pm and tickets are available through Ticketek.
