Press play on the video below to hear Muscat's thoughts on our trip to Brisbane and who is in and out of the squad to face Roar

Muscat confirmed Adama Traore would miss through injury, but the squad he picked would have the best chance to prevent Brisbane Roar from claiming the Premiers' Plate this weekend.

"Maybe they'll be under a little bit of pressure to try and win it in front of their home fans," Muscat said.

"We'll set our stall nice and early and be really aggressive in the way we want to attack that game tomorrow night.

"I wouldn't want to be standing there after the game and see them being presented with the plate.

"But that's not the motivation to go there and win a football game. We want to finish as high as we possibly can in the competition."
