W-League: Squad to tackle the Glory


The Jets Westfield W-League side has again been hit by injury, with skipper, Emily van Egmond the latest to join the rehab group at No.2 Sportsground.

As reported yesterday, the Matildas vice-captain went over on her ankle at training and will be out of action for the next six weeks.

INJURY: van Egmond sidelined

She joins Katie Stengel and Taylor Smith on the sidelines, as Craig Deans is again forced to reshuffle his lineup to face the Glory.

Despite the wretched run of luck on the injury-front, Deans has taken the opportunity to promote the Club’s younger brigade, with Tessa Tamplin included in this week’s squad.

Libby Copus-Brown comes into the frame for a starting berth following her screamer against the Sky Blues last week, while Tara Andrews fitness continues to improve following her return from a fractured ankle.

Cortnee Vine was a last-minute withdrawal with a calf complaint in Round 10, but the speedy attacker has also been named in the squad.
