Goalkeeper Lawrence Thomas is available again for Melbourne Victory as they travel to Adelaide United looking for a win to keep alive their top-two chances.
Coach Kevin Muscat has a fully-fit squad at his disposal for the Coopers Stadium clash against a United side that are one place but nine points behind them in fourth.
Thomas, who has missed the last three matches with a knee injury, is the club's first-choice keeper but Matt Acton has performed well in his absence.
Muscat is not ready to divulge who will start the game against the Reds.
Acton has been an A-League understudy for five seasons, making just eight A-League starts since winning a place in Brisbane Roar's squad in 2013.
Muscat said of Adelaide: "They're desperate for a home final. Especially after last year, that first elimination final was away, was here [in Melbourne].
"Somehow they maybe leave a little bit in the tank for when they play us. I can't remember a dull game against them."
If Victory can't overhaul Sydney FC for second spot they will face eight games in 33 days, including at least four away days, before the Grand Final.
They have to play their remaining three Asian Champions League group games before the end of May, which will stretch their resources.
It will also serve as a distraction for their A-League Finals Series, given that they have no chance of qualifying for the ACL knockout stages following three defeats in their first three matches.
Adelaide, who are aiming to hold off Melbourne City and Wellington to secure fourth place, have named Jordan Elsey in an extended squad after returning from injury, while Pacifique Niyongabire has been promoted.
Melbourne Victory are 9/5 to win their next game against Adelaide United, who are 7/5 with the draw 13/5.
