Jamie Harnwell returns to the heart of defence while James Robinson and Wanye Srhoj have been injected into midfield.
Jason Petkovic retains his place in goal with Harnwell, David Tarka, Jamie Coyne and Nikolai Topor Stanley making up the back four.
Upfront, young striking sensation Nikita Rukavytsya will partner the experienced Eugene Dadi who has three goals to his name in the opening four rounds. Adriano Pellegrino switches to the right of midfield while Scott Bulloch continues his role on the left.
Hard working midfielder Naum Sekulovski makes his first appearance in the 15 man squad this season and is joined on the substitutes bench by Argentinean Adrian Trinidad, defender Stuart McLaren and goal keeper Tando Velaphi.
