The Gold Coast SUNS have made one change to the team to take on St Kilda at Marvel Stadium this Saturday.

Jack Lukosius will miss this week’s match as he recovers from a PCL injury to his knee he sustained in the Round 4 win.

Coming in to replace him for his first AFL match this season is Oleg Markov, who has been named on the wing. 

Markov has played two matches in the VFL to start the year and has impressed with his run and carry while averaging 22 disposals per game.

Jy Farrar has been cleared of any damage to his hamstring after being subbed out of the match against Carlton and will line up against the Saints on Saturday afternoon.

Rory Atkins was activated as the medical substitute last week and remains an emergency alongside Chris Burgess, Caleb Graham and Darcy Macpherson.

One of those four will be designated as the medical substitute prior to the first bounce.

First bounce is at 1:45pm, with the match being broadcast on the Seven Network (check your local guide), Fox Footy, Kayo and the AFL Live Official App.
