A-League week 12 squad lists - Part 2

Archie's hamstring may be tight but his arms are huge - Robert Prezioso

Archie Thompson is set to miss Saturday's big Melbourne Victory-Wesern Sydney Wanderers match at AAMI Park. On Sunday, Kew Jaliens will be a key absence for Newcastle Jets against Adelaide United.

Two A-League games follow the late week games in Round 12 with mostly healthy sides battling in Melbourne and Adelaide. Western Sydney Wanderers had the pick of their litter against the Victory, who will be without Archie Thompson due to a hamstring injury. At the Coopers Stadium, Adelaide United will be all but full strength against Newcastle Jets who will be missing key defender Kew Jaliens with a hamstring injury of his own.
