Melbourne Victory coach Kevin Muscat has named his squad for Friday night’s Round 2 clash against Adelaide United.
Socceroo Mark Milligan has been named in the squad, but Muscat said a decision on whether he would start on Friday night had yet to be made.
There are two inclusions to the extended squad who defeated Western Sydney last Friday, with striker Andrew Nabbout joining Milligan on the list of ins.
Scott Galloway and Dylan Murnane will return to Melbourne after Friday night’s match and could be a part of the squad for Round 3’s Melbourne Derby, while Nick Ansell remains unavailable through injury.
