Vukovic set to reach major A-League milestone

Melbourne Victory goalkeeper Danny Vukovic is set to become the first player to make 250 Hyundai A-League appearances this weekend.

The Victory custodian will reach the major milestone when the reigning champions take on Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.

Vukovic made his Hyundai A-League debut in 2005 for the Central Coast Mariners, where he played 104 games over five seasons.

He made another 17 appearances for Wellington Phoenix in 2010/11, before joining Perth Glory, where he added 106 matches to his tally.

The 30-year-old completed a move to Victory in October last year and has played in every Hyundai A-League game for the club since his arrival.

Vukovic is also the only goalkeeper in Hyundai A-League history to score a goal, having netted a 90th-minute penalty for Phoenix in its 3-1 win over North Queensland Fury in 2011.

He has also kept more clean sheets (69) than any other Hyundai A-League goalkeeper.
