Exciting attacker Nestory Irankunda will return to Adelaide United’s line-up for Sunday afternoon’s Round 5 Isuzu UTE A-League match against Western United.

Coach Carl Veart has named a 20-man squad, with Irankunda’s return from suspension the headline.

Experienced defender Javi Lopez and talented midfielder Ethan Alagich have also been included after also missing the loss to Sydney FC before the international break.

While the final line-up has not been settled on, there will be at least one forced change with Panashe Madanha expected to miss a period of football after undergoing surgery on an ankle injury.
