A-League week 15 squad lists

Remember me? - Scott Barbour

Orlando Engelaar is expected to make his long awaited debut for Melbourne Heart in Week 15.

One of the offseason's biggest names is expected to make his A-League debut on Friday night as Orlando Engelaar finally returns from injury. Melbourne Heart hope their Marquee Player will be able to 'play a part' in their game against Newcastle Jets at AAMI Park. Elsewhere, Ryan Griffiths could make his Adelaide United debut, William Gallas should return from his long calf injury at Perth Glory and Bernie Ibini rejoins Central Coast Mariners after a spell in China. At Sydney FC, Brett Emerton could play one last time, though he has announced his retirement. Andrew Nabbout will be out for Melbourne Victory after his nasty concussion while Mark Milligan had arthroscopic surgery midweek. Mitch Nichols, who is rumored to be making a move to the J-League, is out with a knee injury and won't cross the ditch.
