Western United A-League Men squad: Round 10 vs Brisbane Roar

Leo Lacroix Western United

Fresh from picking up two consecutive wins in the Isuzu UTE A-League Men, Western United will welcome back Leo Lacroix for the Round 10 clash against Brisbane Roar.

The Swiss centre-back has completed a two-match suspension after he was sent off against Perth Glory early in December.

Lacroix will come in as a direct replacement for Nikolai Topor-Stanley, who comes out of John Aloisi’s extended squad after his red card against Melbourne Victory on Monday.

That is the only change to the extended list ahead of Friday night’s match, with Steven Lustica the only other unavailable player as he continues to rehabilitate a hamstring injury.

Josh Risdon marked his return to the side last week with a goal and will look to continue his strong form, as will James Troisi who has provided two match-winning assists in the last two matches.

A win on Friday would see United leapfrog Brisbane on the table and potentially move into the top six for the first time this season.
