Sydney FC are weighing up what action to take against goalkeeper Liam Reddy after he faced his latest disciplinary hearing with the A-League club on Thursday morning.
Reddy's future with the Sky Blues hangs in the balance after admitting he was drunk on a flight to New Zealand for the club's sudden-death final against Wellington.
Reddy fronted club officials to state his case for the second time on Thursday over allegations of serious misconduct after the club last week upgraded his charge over the incident.
Reddy is charged with breaching his standard player contract and could be sacked if found guilty.
Sydney are expected to announce their decision on his future on Thursday afternoon or Friday.
It has been reported Reddy consumed alcohol both before and on the flight and vomited on the plane and on the team bus to the hotel in Wellington.
Reddy was sent home by Sydney officials before the clash against the Phoenix, which Sydney lost 3-2 to end their season.
He spent much of the back end of the season on the bench, after being deposed by Ivan Necevski as Sydney's first-choice goalkeeper.
Even if Reddy is not sacked, it is thought he may be allowed to shop around for a fifth A-League club to play for - having previously represented Newcastle, Brisbane and Wellington - despite having a year left on his contract.
