No Jade North for A-League semi-final

NZN 30/04/2017 Ben McKay

Brisbane Roar vice captain Jade North won't play in Sunday's A-League semi-final after failing to overcome illness.

The 35-year-old battled on despite poor health in last Friday's elimination final but was withdrawn from consideration for the meeting with Melbourne Victory early on Sunday by coach John Aloisi.

Aside from the loss of North, Aloisi has enjoyed good fortune on the injury front.

Captain Matt McKay, Arana and Jack Hingert have all proved their fitness ahead of the AAMI Park match.

With goalkeeper Michael Theo sidelined, Jamie Young will deputise despite receiving 26 stitches in his arm from a midweek injury on Asian Champions League duty.

Melbourne Victory boast a fully fit squad.
