Australian Football: Bulls to welcome back stars

Macarthur boss Ante Milicic has revealed striker Tomi Juric and a host of other key players are set to return to his squad as the Bulls target a strong end to the season.

The Bulls are priced at 10/1 to win the grand final and Juric and co could be ready to boost Milicic’s side at just the right time.

Sydney FC draw

Macarthur let a 2-0 lead slip and had to settle for a 2-2 against Sydney FC on Wednesday night. The point leaves them fifth on the ladder and there is still work to do to secure a finals spot.

The Bulls have had issues on the injury front all season and new striker Juric has hardly kicked a ball since arriving from Adelaide.

However the former Socceroos ace is now on the verge of a return and if the Bulls can get him firing then he will give them a huge lift.

Next up is a home game with Perth Glory on Sunday and there could be some top players returning.

Stars returning

"The last two games have been decent, but we've got one point, we need more," Milicic said after the Sydney game. "We've got a lot of games at home (five of our last seven). Hopefully we're going to get some bodies back.

"Tomi Juric has been doing a little bit of training so we are all obviously excited about that.

"You look at Juric and Mariappa, they are a chance, but Nooney will also be available for selection as well, which is a big plus for us.

"We've probably missed too many important players for too long, but we're still there or thereabouts and we're confident if we can get them back towards mid to late April then we're a chance."
