Brisbane Roar striker Reinaldo is set to return to the line-up for the round 3 clash with Sydney FC at Suncorp Stadium.

The exciting Brazilian has been sidelined with a hamstring problem which forced him out of the opening weekend's 0-0 draw with Gold Coast United but he should be ready for the reigning champions on Saturday, August 21.

The Roar have the bye this week which will give Reinaldo an extra few days to prepare himself for the clash with Sydney and he will be a welcome addition to Ange Postecoglou's team which was so impressive but unlucky against United.
