Relaid Suncorp surface ready for A-League blockbuster

After recent concerts at the venue, Suncorp Stadium has been relaid and Brisbane Roar have given the surface the thumbs up ahead of Sunday night's huge Hyundai A-League clash with high-flying Melbourne City.

The Roar are scheduled to have a training session on the new turf before Sunday's blockbuster match against the in-form Melbourne City.

Brisbane are second on the ladder, one point ahead of City.

The two teams clashed at Suncorp Stadium in Round 7 on 20 November. That match ended in a 1-1 draw.

Since then Melbourne City have won four on the trot, scoring 16 goals and conceding three.

The Roar have posted two victories and a draw in their four games since, including Sunday's 1-0 win over Central Coast with Dimitri Petratos getting a spectacular winner in the 85th minute.

Roar players celebrate after Dimitri Petratos opened the scoring against Central Coast Mariners.

Striker Jamie Maclaren went off injured with a leg knock but is expected to train this week and be available for selection.

Midfielder Steven Lustica, who was replaced at half time with an abdominal strain, is under treatment and will be further assessed later in the week.

Michael Theo, Luke DeVere, Corey Brown, Devante Clut and Shannon Brady all got game minutes in the Young Roar's 10-0 Foxtel National Youth League win over Adelaide United at Cleveland on Saturday.

All five are expected to continue training with the main group this week as they look to impress Head Coach John Aloisi, who once again has a strong squad from which to select his Starting XI for the Melbourne City match.
