Melbourne Heart FC will play its final pre-season match ahead of the Hyundai A-League 2013-14 season against a Peninsula XI side at Frankston Park, Frankston, from 3pm today.
After the Red and White-s narrow 1-2 loss against Adelaide United on Friday Head Coach John Aloisi is likely to field a youthful line-up against the Peninsula select side today.
Sam Mitchinson, Jeremy Walker and David Vrankovic are likely to feature, while Italian midfielder Andrea Migliorini, who came on as a substitute against Adelaide, is likely to receive further game time.
Aloisi, who will finalise his squad for today's match closer to kick-off, may also give game time to some of the Club's youth team players.
Aloisi said that the final hit-out would allow him to give players further game time in their legs and work on important structures ahead of Round One of the Hyundai A-League season.
