Canberra United have been boosted for the rebel Female Football Round opener against Adelaide United by the return of captain Rachel Corsie.
The third-placed Canberra travel to South Australia for Thursday evening’s Westfield W-League clash and are still missing Refiloe Jane (international duty) and Aoife Colvill (foot).
But the return of Corsie - who is also Scotland's captain - is a big boost as Canberra look to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Newcastle Jets last week.
