Hyundai A-League Ins & Outs: Round 3

Melbourne Victory’s attacking depth will be put to the test in the 2017/18 Hyundai A-League Grand Final re-match against the Newcastle Jets on Saturday night.

Victory - who won last season's decider 1-0 - will be without forward Kenny Athiu due to a hamstring injury, with the big man to join Swedish import Ola Toivonen on the sidelines.

The Jets have promoted Ivan Vujica to their matchday squad for the much-anticipated clash at McDonald Jones Stadium.
