Melbourne Victory coach Kevin Muscat says his side isn-t fazed by its hectic schedule and was looking forward to taking on an in-form Wellington side.

Speaking following this afternoon-s training session in Wellington, Muscat confirmed Chilean Pablo Contreras and youngster Christopher Cristaldo would come into Saturday-s match day squad, with Andrew Nabbout and youth league defender Milos Ridesic making way for the duo.

Muscat said the club-s medical team had erred on the side of caution with Nabbout following the concussion he sustained in Tuesday night-s clash with Western Sydney.

“He-ll have some more tests with the doctor at the start of the week, but from all accounts I don-t see any problems with him training next week and he-ll be available for selection,” Muscat said.

Muscat confirmed Mitch Nichols was available for selection for the match against the ‘Nix, but hadn-t traveled with the side to New Zealand.

“I picked the squad based on picking the best players that were available to win a game of football in Wellington and I-ve picked the squad accordingly,” Muscat said.

And with plenty of talk surrounding the availability Socceroo Tom Rogic, Muscat said there was nothing further he could add.

“Speculation is not something I-m going to enter into,” he said.

With three games in eight days, Muscat said his side was relishing the opportunity to play as much football as possible.

“We-re looking forward to a decent game, (Wellington) picked up some good results in the last few rounds so we are looking forward to the challenge.

“We take a lot of positives out of Tuesday night-s game and we-ll be taking that momentum into Saturday.”
