Melbourne Heart FC-s Rutger Worm has completed a swift return from injury after earning a call-up for the Club-s match against Gold Coast United today.

The Dutchman missed Heart-s previous two encounters with Wellington Phoenix and Sydney FC after picking up an adductor strain during the Club-s wrenching 2-1 loss to Brisbane Roar at AAMI Park.

But after a quicker than expected recovery, Worm is poised to take his place on the bench for this evening-s encounter, bolstering a squad set back by the loss of Josip Skoko and Wayne Srhoj through injury and suspension respectively.

Vice-Captain Matt Thompson will also make his return to the Heart squad after serving a one-match ban, while youngster Kliment Taseski has been called up as well.

Squad 1. Clint Bolton, 2. Michael Marrone, 3. Brendan Hamill, 4. Simon Colosimo, 5. Michael Beauchamp, 6. Matt Thompson, 7. Rutger Worm, 9. Gerald Sibon, 11. Alex Terra, 12. Peter Zois, 15. John Aloisi, 16. Aziz Behich, 21. Kliment Taseski, 22. Nick Kalmar, 25. Adrian Zahra

Unavailable Josip Skoko (Groin) 2 weeks, Ante Tomic (Hip) 1 week, Eli Babalj (Hip and Thigh) 6-8 weeks
