W-League: Collister returns for Brisbane trip


A preliminary squad of 18 has been named by Craig Deans to head north for Sunday’s clash with Brisbane Roar.

After making her first appearance in the side’s Round 5 defeat to Sydney FC, Annabel Martin is again in the mix and is likely to once again take up her place in the starting XI in Brisbane.

The woman who made way for her, Teigan Collister, is back in with a shout after missing out against Sydney due to a hamstring complaint.

Promoted into the squad and a chance once again is Renee Pountney, who has been working hard on the training paddock as she strives for her first appearance in the top flight this season.
