A-League Men squad: Perth Glory vs Western United

John Aloisi has named his first Isuzu UTE A-League Men extended squad in nearly a month as Western United prepares to return to action against Perth Glory.

The 27-day break between matches has allowed midfielder Tongo Doumbia to return to fitness, with the Malian in contention for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury in Round 2.

Aloisi will also be able to welcome back Nikolai Topor-Stanley upon the completion of his suspension, the ban having been reduced from three games to two upon appeal.

Aleksandar Prijovic is available again after making a scoring return to the side in the last match against Wellington Phoenix, and match-winner Alessandro Diamanti will also be in contention as he continues his return from injury this season.

After signing a new contract at the Club this week, Rhys Bozinovski is in the squad and will be aiming for back-to-back league starts for the first time in his career.

Midfielder Steven Lustica is the only remaining injury absentee for the Green and Black as he continues his recovery from a hamstring issue sustained in the Round 5 loss to Adelaide United.
