Perth Glory coach Ian Ferguson has selected an 18 man squad for this week-s gruelling road double against Sydney FC on Wednesday and Wellington on Saturday.

Steve Pantelidis, Tommy Amphlett and Jesse Makarounas have all been added to the squad that beat Gold Coast United 2-nil on Saturday night.

Josh Risdon was unfortunately ruled out after needing stitches from a knock he received playing for Glory Youth on Sunday.

The two games against Sydney and Wellington complete a taxing start to the season for Perth, with Glory opening the 2011/12 campaign with 7 of the first 11 games away from home.

Tomorrow night-s match at Campbelltown Stadium is part of the FFA-s commitment to playing games in regional areas.

The two sides have already met once this season back on November 10 at nib Stadium. Despite controlling large parts of the game and creating a handful off opportunities, a goal from Mark Bridge just before half-time handed the visitors a 1-nil win.
