Perth Glory will welcome back Bruno Fornaroli, Andy Keogh and Daniel Sturridge when they take on Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday.
It has been an A-League season to forget for Glory who have been hit by disruption, injury, sickness and long spells away from home.
It has resulted in Glory picking up the wooden spoon for the first time in the club’s history but they hope to give the fans something to smile about in the last two games of the season which are both at home.
It is the last six weeks or so that have been the hardest on the injury front. Richard Garcia was sacked as coach and since then interim boss Ruben Zadkovich has had to field mainly a youth side.
But now there is finally some good news. Star striker Fornaroli is expected to play for the first time since injuring his ankle on international duty with the Socceroos.
Record goalscorer Keogh, who has announced he will retire at the end of the season is also expected to play some part and will be given a send-off.
And finally Sturridge who has missed most of the season through injury will also get a run-out. The marquee signing has played just 93 minute in patches.
Glory have revealed he is unlikely to stay on for next season after admitting the move has not worked out.
Glory wrap up the season against Melbourne City on Wednesday night.
