Sydney FC have been boosted by the news that striker Mark Bridge is available for Sunday’s clash with Perth Glory.

The 25-year old ahs missed the past two Sky Blues matches with a hamstring but has been declared fit to play in the Parramatta Stadium fixture.

Bridge admitted he has a tough of it watching from the sidelines and cannot wait to get back to action with his teammates.

“It’s very frustrating sitting on the sidelines, especially because it is the second time for me this season,” Bridge said.

“It was only two weeks so it was good we had one win in that time which was against Newcastle. I felt the boys played well in the second half against the Gold Coast (last weekend) so hopefully we can take something from that and reverse that result this week.”

Bridge admitted he was uncertain whether or not he would start or even what position he would be deployed in and was also remaining wary of a fired up Glory outfit.

“I am not sure what role I will play yet. I have played attacking midfielder a lot this season but we will work on our formation on Friday and Saturday. There could be a role off the bench coming back from injury too,” he added.

“They [Perth] played well last week against Melbourne. They have a good side with a lot of dangerous players that are very unpredictable and it always hard to play against a team that is coming off a win.”
