Socceroo legend Josip Skoko has been named in the match day squad for Melbourne Heart FC-s trip to face Adelaide United at Hindmarsh Stadium tomorrow night.
After narrowly missing out on regaining fitness in time for the Melbourne Derby rematch, Skoko will be back for Heart-s final clash against the Reds in the home and away season.
Making 14 starting appearances, Skoko has been an integral member of the Heart line-up, impressing with his vision and composure on the ball, and his return is certain to be a boost for the side ahead of its trip west.
Heart though has been hit by a setback with Gerald Sibon-s absence confirmed for the next 1-2 weeks due to a hamstring strain, while fellow striking options Eli Babalj (thigh 4-6 weeks) and Alex Terra (hamstring 1 week) remain unavailable.
