No team news as yet (although Jol says himself he doesn’t rotate very much) but the two new signings Kasami and Gecov could both make their debuts in tomorrows game against RNK Split and are joined by new reserve keeper Somogyi, although barring an injury to Schwarzer he is very unlikely to feature. Academy graduates Briggs and Frei also travel, retaining their places amongst the first team pros after impressing in their appearances in the Europa League. As far as injuries go Davies has recovered from his knock to rejoin the squad but Dembele and Dempsey, who returned to training late due to injury and rest respectively, aren’t available although they are expected to be fit for the home leg.
The 19 man squad travelling to Croatia is:
Schwarzer, Baird, Hangeland, Senderos, Hughes, JA Riise, Etuhu, Davies, Murphy, Sidwell, BH Riise, Briggs, Zamora, Johnson, Somogyi, Kelly, Kasami, Frei, Gecov
