A-League week 18 squad lists

Michael Dodge

Sasa Ognenovski highlights a group of new signings in this weekend's round of key A-League games.

In the first weekend of A-League games since the closing of the transfer window, clubs across the league will debut newly signed players. Interesting, all five games will take place in New South Wales with the Melbourne Heart-Perth Glory game moving to Albury. While the inclusions of Steven Lustica (Brisbane Roar), Eddy Bosnar (Central Coast Mariners), Sasa Ognenovski (Sydney FC) and Michael Marrone (Adelaide United) are all changes due to transfers, returns from injury should play an equally important role this weekend. Ivan Franjic (Brisbane), Mark Milligan (Melbourne Victory) and Michael Zullo (Adelaide) all come back from recovery in a vitally important Round 18.
