Valeri to miss Victory's A-League Cup date

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 27/10/2016 Ben McKay

Melbourne Victory skipper Carl Valeri has been ruled out of the club's A-League match with Wellington Phoenix on Monday night.

Soreness will stop Valeri, 32, from lining up on the now-traditional Melbourne Cup eve match at Etihad Stadium.

New signing Max Beister, who was unveiled earlier on Thursday, has also missed out on the extended 18-man squad as he acclimatises to his new surroundings.

But James Troisi could make a return to action just three weeks after breaking his collarbone.

The Socceroos attacker has trained through the week and has been added to the squad that lost 2-0 to Melbourne City on Tuesday night in the FFA Cup.

Joining Troisi in the squad are young pair Jai Ingham and Stefan Nigro.
