Adelaide United boss Carl Veart has announced his extended squad for the Reds’ crucial clash against Wellington Phoenix at Coopers Stadium on Friday night.

The two sides met just a fortnight ago with the ‘Nix prevailing 2-1 after a last-gasp penalty.

Adelaide will be determined to avenge that result and get back on track after three games without a win.

Yaya Dukuly, Yared Abetew and Jonny Yull have all been promoted, while Mohamed Toure is absent serving a one-match suspension.

James Delianov and Noah Smith are close to returning to the A-League squad with the pair playing in last weekend’s National Premier League game against Campbelltown City to regain match sharpness.

Delianov played the full 90 minutes and Smith played 45 minutes.
