Adelaide United will wait until the eleventh hour to make a decision on goalkeeper Eugene Galekovic’s fitness for tonight’s ACL semi-final second leg.
Galekovic is struggling with a groin injury but the Reds are prepared to give him every chance of being right for tonight’s important clash with Uzbek outfit Bunyodkor/Kuruvchi.
The Reds hold a three-nil lead going into the second leg and would love to have their inspiring keeper with them.
“Eugene had a light session yesterday and we will give him up to the very last minute for him to get himself fit,” coach Aurelio Vidmar said.
“He did a bit more at training last night and he should be fine to play.”
Marquee player Paul Agostino will miss with a torn calf which may see him miss up to four weeks whilst Diego will be welcomed back after being unavailable last week due to illness.
Bunyodkor regains a key player in striker Jose Luis Villanueva who was forced off the ground in the first leg with a hamstring injury.
