Rhys Williams might return for Glory

The frosty relationship between Rhys Williams and Perth might be about to thaw, with the A-League club recalling the former Socceroo for Saturday night's clash with Melbourne Victory.

Williams had been left out in the cold for the past five games after requesting a switch to rivals Sydney FC.

The Glory had refused that request, and coach Kenny Lowe has named Williams in his extended squad to face Victory.
