Trent Sainsbury, left, has made 16 appearances for Australia since making his debut in 2014.

A sprinkler ruined Trent Sainsbury's World Cup dream two years ago, and the Socceroos defender is hoping for a much smoother run to football's showpiece event this time around.

The 24-year-old has joined his fellow Socceroos in Perth before Thursday night's World Cup qualifier against Iraq at nib Stadium.

He was considered a World Cup bolter for Brazil in 2014, but then he broke his kneecap after landing on a sprinkler while making his debut for PEC Zwolle in the Dutch top flight.

Coach Ange Postecoglou ruled England-based Wright out on Sunday, calling in Perth Glory's Josh Risdon to replace him.

"Bailey has a minor injury that he has been nursing and although he played for Preston overnight we thought it better for him to stay in the U.K.," Postecoglou said.

"We have two tough matches in quick succession and will need everyone...

Davidson was overlooked by Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou for next month's World Cup qualifiers against Iraq and and the UAE and hasn't been featured in any of Hudderfield's first four matches of the season.

The 25-year-old has been on the outer with Terriers boss David Wagner after falling out with the former Borusssia Dortmund assistant coach last season and the Dutch side...

Crystal Palace owe Mile Jedinak for establishing them in Premier League

Mile Jedinak and Scott Dann
Mile Jedinak was stripped of the captaincy this season.

It is a testament to Mile Jedinak's leadership qualities that when former teammates speak about him, they do so in glowing terms that highlight his qualities as a person and a player.

For most Crystal Palace fans, Jedinak has been an iconic leader -- up there with greats like Jim Cannon and Geoff Thomas -- as an establishing force in the side. It might also be why his current manager feels it's time for him to move on.

The Australia international arrived at Palace in 2011 with the club in serious...
