Ins & Outs: Deans confirms squad for Perth


Newcastle Jets welcome Jason Hoffman back from injury for Saturday’s clash in Perth against the Glory.

In a blow for coach Craig Deans, the Jets will be without captain Nigel Boogaard who misses the match through suspension, while Johnny Kourtroumbis has been sidelined for 4-6 weeks with an injured MCL.

The squad is also without Ben Kantarovksi (calf), Lucas Mauragis (ankle) and Archie Goodwin (ankle).

“It’s an opportunity for the players coming in to show me they should’ve been there from the start,” Deans said.
