Carl Veart has announced his extended squad for Adelaide United’s huge match against Sydney FC at Coopers Stadium on Saturday night.
A win for the Reds would keep alive its slim chances of a second place finish, but regardless it would almost guarantee a top-four berth and home elimination final.
George Timotheou, Bernardo, Al Hassan Toure and Jonny Yull have all been promoted.
Juande and Kusini Yengi have both been ruled out with hamstring injuries.
Tomi Juric is still managing a calf issue, while Joe Gauci and Nathan Konstandopoulos remain unavailable.
