Gold Coast Captain Steven May and champion midfielder Gary Ablett are both a chance to take to the field for the SUNS’ home match against Richmond.

General Manager- Football Operations, Marcus Ashcroft, told the Optomo Injury Report May and Ablett would need to pass a fitness test, but the outlook was positive.

“Gary and Steven May are in the same category, both had minor hamstring issues,” Ashcroft said.

“They are both expected the be available this weekend but we need to get through the week and they’ll do a fitness test on Thursday to confirm that.”

After being a late withdrawal from the SUNS’ round 18 match in Cairns, defender Rory Thompson is ruled out for at least the next couple of weeks.

“Rory isn’t going to play this week, and we’ll monitor him over the next couple of weeks,” Ashcroft said.

“We think at this stage he’s going to miss the next couple of weeks, he has a hamstring issue we’re trying to get on top of.”

Meanwhile Jack Leslie (leg) is also unavailable for at least another week, with Brandon Matera (foot) and Matt Shaw (calf) listed as tests.

“Brandon will get tested again this Thursday, he’s getting a scan later in the week to see how his foot is progressing,” Ashcroft said. 

“We’re hopeful it’ll be okay and he can resume playing footy but we won’t know any more until Thursday afternoon.

“Shawy’s been progressing slowly with his calf complaint - we need to get through the week to see how he pulls up, he’s more unlikely to play this weekend than likely.”
