Star midfielder Aiden O’Neill has been promoted after missing Sunday’s outing against Melbourne City, as has Young Roar defender Aaron Reardon after anchoring the Young Roar’s defence in last week’s 7-0 Foxtel Y-League victory.

Hat-trick hero Roy O’Donovan is set to lead the line again while Welshman Aaron Amadi-Holloway will also be eager to add to his maiden Hyundai A-League goal.
