Heath Pearce starting XI

Turner; Dest, Zimmerman, Rem, Robinson; Adams, Musah, McKenney; Like, Sargent, Policeman.

Jimmy Conrad’s starting XI

Turner; Dest, Zimmerman, Rem, Robinson; Adams, Musah, McKenney; Like, Sargent, Policeman.

This is a remarkable development for a team that is unsure of its best XI in the game.
