Hyundai Ins and Outs: Round 26

The Original Rivalry is the eye-catching fixture ahead of the weekend's action in the Hyundai A-League with both Adelaide United and Melbourne Victory boosted by key inclusions.

But the Reds also welcome back a key cog to their side, with defender Jordan Elsey in line to start alongside Michael Jakobsen in the heart of defence.
