Defender Adama Traore has been ruled out of the match, with Muscat saying the defender wouldn't pull up in time from a slight injury picked up in the 3-0 win over Perth Glory on Saturday night.

But despite the tough schedule, every other player had put their hand up for selection, he said.

"We need to win tomorrow night," Muscat said.

"We'll make a decision on who to play tomorrow night, first and foremost to win a football game, but with the next four or five weeks in mind as well.

"We're probably still a little bit disappointed from last outing at home, that we didn't take all three points. We've got to win to give ourselves a chance of getting out of the group.
