Murray was the 2013 National Premier Leagues Queensland golden boot (27 goals), but his 2014 campaign was spoiled by injury.
The 30-year-old, who has played with Ipswich Town, is fighting fit and poised to rediscover his goal-scoring ways.
So the Fire, which missed the finals for the first time last year, will be on guard.
The Bokarina-based outfit boasts a relatively new-look squad. Former midfielder Paul Arnison has taken the reins as coach and Reyze Kelly has been appointed captain.
Thirteen of the 20-man roster are yet to make their debuts for the side in the NPL.
The match will be streamed live.
In the competition's opening encounter, Brisbane Strikers drew 2-2 with Redlands at Perry Park last night.
The Strikers are coached by last year's Fire coach, Kevin A'herne-Evans.
