Melbourne Heart midfielder Kristian Sarkies is hoping he can get out on the park for tomorrow night's second Melbourne derby against his old club the Victory.
He missed the previous 10 months of action after breaking his leg in two places in February but is keen to grace the AAMI Park turf against his old mates.
"I'd love that for sure," he said yesterday.
"I've still got some good mates there and it would be great to play against them.
"But I wouldn't have a clue (about selection). We'll find out tomorrow or the next day and I'm not going to put all my eggs in one basket."
Sarkies' plans, however, may be thwarted by the fact that Heart's regular midfielders Wayne Srhoj and Josip Skoko could be back on deck. Srhoj will certainly play after serving a suspension whilst Skoko is touch-and-go as he battles injury.
