Harry Kewell 50-50
Melbourne Heart FC captain Harry Kewell will undergo a fitness test ahead of this afternoon-s clash before he will be considered for the match against the Mariners. If he doesn-t feature for the Red and White, then Head Coach John Aloisi has plenty of cover in the form of Iain Ramsay and David Williams.

Club songs
After an influx of suggestions and ideas from our passionate members on our Club Songs for the 2013-14 season, we revealed the winning entries on Thursday! This season there will be a great combination of songs and chants to create a match-day atmosphere at AAMI Park that all fans can enjoy. We had a dead heat on our player walk-out track, so we are incorporating two tracks prior to our Club Song. We are hoping members will embrace the following structure each match-day at AAMI Park:
– Warm-Up Track: Wake Up by Rage Against the Machine
– 1. Player Walk Out Song: When the Heart Go Marching In
– 2. Pre-Match Club Song (Two minutes before kick-off): So Happy Together
– 3. Goal Celebration Track: Get Up Offa That Thing by James Brown
– 4. End Game Win Track: When the Heart Go Marching In
Thanks to all of those who voted and we can-t wait to hear you create a fantastic and unique atmosphere at AAMI Park today for our first home match for the season!
