Terry Antonis and Mark Bridge are out of this weekend-s game against Brisbane Roar, coach Vitezslav Lavicka has revealed.
Striker Bridge has been suffering with back problems since the Wellington game and is likely to be replaced by Bruno Cazarine, while Antonis will be rested to allow his body to recover after a hectic schedule.
“Terry Antonis, he had some problems and he was very tired after the game in Wellington so we have to think and be smart with him.
“When he came back from Young Socceroos in Malaysia he was tired, he played three games for us and his body is getting more and more tired.
“We must be smart and make balance between his work and recovery as well.”
Scott Jamieson will also miss the game through suspension after picking up five yellow cards and will be replaced by Shannon Cole.
