Singaporean international Safuwan Baharudin is unavailable due to a minor back injury.
“Safuwan also picked up a problem this week so hopefully he can come back and prepare himself for the Reds,” van’t Schip said.
“He’s feeling a bit of tightness in his back and we just have to be careful with that.”
Van’t Schip will look to blood youth this week, with the match against Perth coming at an opportune time for the Dutchman to test the depth of his squad.
“We’ll have a few boys come in, Stefan Mauk will come in, Marc Marino will come in and we’re going to take Nick Symeoy with us so there will be a few [young] boys who will be travelling with us.” van’t Schip said.
