Owing to an otherwise full-strength group, there is just the sole fitness worry for the Sydney FC gaffer Steve Corica to contend with. Michael Zullo (Calf Problems) won’t be in action.
It seems to us that Sydney FC and Brisbane Roar could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.
