Team News: Round 4 v Brisbane Roar

Melbourne Victory has named its squad for Saturday’s clash with Brisbane Roar at Dolphin Stadium

Victory will be forced to make a change in the midfield with captain, Josh Brillante missing this week due to his red card in the Melbourne Derby.

Tomi Juric made his return last week as he came on for his first minutes in Victory colours off the bench. He’ll look to continue to build up his minutes this week as he looks to break into the competitive forward third.

Matt Spiranovic (foot) has had another positive week on the track as he gets closer to an appearance while Jason Geria (hip) will continue his rehab as he earmarks a return to the squad.
