The team is in for Sunday’s clash with Newcastle at AAMI Park. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.
Only one change is made to the extended squad after Rostyn Griffiths’ red card on New Year’s Day with the midfielder sitting out this week through suspension.
Despite the midfielder’s absence, it’s another relatively unchanged side for the contest with Warren Joyce making only one change to his extended squad in three weeks.
With several midfield options, Osama Malik looks to be the first choice to replace Griffiths in the eleven after his successful return from injury over the past two weeks.
Curtis Good, Iacopo La Rocca and Connor Metcalfe make up the extended squad with one of the trio likely to play a part in the match day squad on Sunday.
