ADELAIDE United’s star winger Johan Absalonsen has recovered from a thigh injury and travelled to Melbourne in a major boost for the Reds’ pressure cooker clash against Victory on Saturday night.

The 32-year-old Dane hasn’t featured in a United match since January 5, a 3-0 win over Perth Glory away where he scored after coming off the bench for 45 minutes in the second half.

Absalonsen injured his glute during that match after the former Danish international was forced to sit on the sidelines for about 10 weeks when he injured his thigh in the Reds FFA Cup semi final 2-1 win over Western Sydney away in October.

Adelaide midfielder Jordan O’Doherty, who had his game cut very short last week after he was sacrificed for Taylor Regan in the 21st minute when Ersan Gulum was sent off in the 2-2 draw with Central Coast at home, welcomed the Dane back to the squad.

“He (Absalonsen) is a huge player for our team and he gives us a lot of experience,’’ O’Doherty said at Adelaide Airport before the Reds flew to Melbourne on Friday.
