Ins & Outs: Roar squad confirmed for key City clash

Brisbane Roar team huddle

Brisbane Roar Head Coach Warren Moon has named his extended 20-man squad for Tuesday night’s key A-League clash with Melbourne City.

After beating the Jets in Newcastle over the weekend, the Roar are gearing up for another important game against the newly crowned Premiers at Moreton Daily Stadium (KO 7:05pm).

Joe Champness returns to the fold after sitting out on Friday, while Young Roar midfielder Brandon McMorrow has been promoted to the 20.

Brisbane will be looking to prove a point after narrowly going down 3-2 to City in a rollercoaster encounter at AAMI Park just over two weeks ago.
