TEAM NEWS: Roar settled ahead of Adelaide trip


We will take a settled squad to the City of Churches for tomorrow night’s Hyundai A-League Round 6 clash against the Reds.

Head Coach John Aloisi has named the same 18-man squad as the one that notched up the Roar’s first victory against Melbourne City at Suncorp Stadium last weekend.

After narrowly missing out on a spot in the Matchday squad last round, Stefan Mauk is once again in contention to play his first minutes in Orange since Round 2.

Twenty-year-old Joe Caletti is also in line for his first appearance of Season 2018/19.

After shooting to the top of the Golden Boot race with a brace last round, Adam Taggart will be looking to find the back of the net for a fourth game running, which would take him to ninth spot in the league’s all-time goal scoring ranks.

Brisbane has won the last two clashes against the Reds, including their last meeting at Coopers Stadium – a 2-1 win last December.
