Experienced defender Maruschka Waldus has returned to full team training for the first time this season, after being sidelined with a lower leg and ankle injury that required surgery in preseason. 

Waldus took part in an internal match simulation over the weekend, with no Liberty A-League games taking place due to the Women’s International Break.

Goalkeeper Annalee Grove has also returned to full team training after completing the required concussion protocols and is available for selection.

Adelaide take on Melbourne Victory in Round Three of the Liberty A-League at AAMI Park on Saturday 4 November from 4:30pm (ACDT) as part of a double header.
