Nth Qld hopeful of Daal return

North Queensland Fury are hopeful that striker Dyron Daal will return for this Saturday night's derby with Gold Coast United.

The Netherlands Antilles international missed last week's trip to play Melbourne Victory because of a thigh injury but fell ill over the weekend and is still touch and go for the Fury's final match of the season.

"We were hoping we could have him back to do a bit of training but he actually ended up unwell at the weekend," said Fury coach Ian Ferguson.

"I don't know exactly what it was but hopefully he'll be back on Thursday and Friday for a couple of sessions and we'll be able to make a judgment on him then."
