The newest Western Sydney Wanderer, Kwame Yeboah, is in line to make his Hyundai A-League return as Markus Babbel’s side host Wellington Phoenix in Round 12 on Tuesday night.
The former Brisbane Roar attacker, Yeboah, spent the past four years playing in Germany but sealed his return to his homeland last week in an attempt to kick-start his career.

The 24-year-old will be seeking to boost the Wanderers’ forward line against a Phoenix side who will be without defensive midfielder Mandi.
The Spaniard will miss the first match of his three-game ban following a straight red card for a kick on Vince Lia in Saturday’s 0-0 draw in Adelaide.
