Hyundai Ins and Outs - Round 20

Star Newcastle Jets import Wes Hoolahan is in line to make his long-awaited Hyundai A-League debut after Carl Robinson included him in his Jets squad preparing to face Melbourne Victory on Saturday afternoon.

The 'Irish Messi' sustained a serious ankle injury in September, 2019, forcing Jets fans to wait to see the former-English Premier League star in action for their side, but that wait may just be over as Hoolahan joins the Jets squad for Round 20.

Melbourne Victory, meanwhile, travel to face the Jets without Robbie Kruse, who will miss his first game in what is expected to be an extended absence as he recovers from a hamstring tear.

In the early Saturday kick-off Tony Popovic takes his Perth Glory squad to face Brisbane Roar on Sunday afternoon with Diego Castro recalled to his squad after a two-game injury layoff.

Perth's talismanic captain has been out of action since Round 16, and he returns to the fray to face a Brisbane outfit high on confidence and boosted by the return of their own attacking weapon Scott McDonald, who missed the Roar's win over Western United in Round 19.

Central Coast Mariners and Sydney FC round out this weekend's action on Sunday afternoon, and the bottom-placed Mariners will take confidence from the returning Tommy Oar and Matt Simon as they look to claim a massive scalp against the league leaders at Central Coast Stadium.
