Victory names squad to face Jets in Geelong


Melbourne Victory has added two players to an extended squad for Monday night’s match against Newcastle Jets in Geelong.

Tickets for the match are available here.

Mitch Austin and Rashid Mahazi have been promoted for the Round 13 clash, with two players to be omitted before kick-off.

Austin and Mahazi were also promoted for last week’s game against Central Coast Mariners, though both were later omitted from the final squad.

Injured goalkeeper Alastair Bray (shoulder) is the only player unavailable for Victory, which has won five of its past six matches.

Victory is unbeaten in its past three encounters with the Jets (two wins and a draw), keeping two clean sheets in the process.

Besart Berisha, who has scored nine goals this season, will break the Hyundai A-League‘s all-time record of 90 if he finds the back of the net against Newcastle.

Tickets for the match are available here.
