Sydney FC to welcome back Kisel

Sydney FC are set to welcome back Slovak international Karol Kisel for Sunday's A-League clash with Brisbane but John Aloisi and Stephan Keller remain in doubt with injuries.

Kisel was ruled out of Sydney's 2-1 win over Newcastle Jets last Sunday with a virus but returned to training with Vitezslav Lavicka's side on Thursday.

The 32-year-old, who made 25 appearances for Slovakia, still needs to regain his strength over the coming days but officials are confident he will be fit to take on the Roar.

The news is not as positive on star striker Aloisi and Swiss defender Keller, who also missed the win over the Jets.

Former Socceroos star Aloisi is still being hampered by a knee injury and is yet to return to training while Keller (calf) has only resumed light running duties.

Both players were named in Sydney's squad to face the Roar on Thursday but Lavicka is likely to make a late call on whether they travel with the team to Queensland on Saturday.

If Aloisi is ruled out, Sydney could continue with the partnership of Mark Bridge and Alex Brosque up front after a strong showing against the Jets.

Bridge scoring a stunning opener against his former club while Brosque won the penalty for Sydney's second.

Or Lavicka may opt to restore Brosque to the wing in place of Adam Casey, pushing Steve Corica up front and allowing Kisel to slot back into central midfield.
