Team News: Vidosic confirms squad for Newcastle trip

Melbourne City is Newcastle-bound this weekend in the A-League Women’s, set to face the Jets away from home on Sunday.

City remains undefeated after the first four rounds of the season, currently sitting second on the table after a strong beginning to the new campaign.

Head Coach Dario Vidosic has now confirmed his squad ahead of the trip across the border in a few days’ time.

Leah Davidson has returned to the squad after making her first appearance of the season a fortnight ago against Western United, while Karly Roestbakken has also been named as she aims to make her own return from injury.

Young duo Tijan McKenna and Caitlin Karic have also both been promoted to the extended squad ahead of Sunday.
