Hyundai Ins and Outs: Round 27

Adam Le Fondre trails Roy Krishna by two goals in the race for the Golden Boot but the Sydney FC striker will have to cope without the creative input of Siem de Jong on Saturday.

Coach Steve Corica has left out the Dutchman after his Asian Champions League exploits in midweek, with promising young striker Luke Ivanovic called up in his place.

De Jong’s fellow Dutchman, Jop van der Linden, returns to the match day squad for the trip to face the Newcastle Jets, who welcome back Nigel Boogaard and Ronald Vargas.

BATTLE FOR FOURTHWill it be Adelaide or Wellington?

Wellington Phoenix name a full-strength team to face Perth Glory on Sunday, aside from the injured Louis Fenton, as striker Roy Krishna seeks to seal his place at the top of the goalscorers' list.

Mark Rudan's side will have a chance to steal fourth place from Adelaide if the Reds drop points at Brisbane on Thursday.

With Melbourne City looking destined for sixth place, they leave out Ritchie de Laet and Harrison Delbridge for their home game against the Central Coast Mariners on Friday, but Warren Joyce welcomes back Scott Jamieson and Bart Schenkeveld from injury.
