5 things to look forward to: City v Glory

Noone v PER

A massive evening of football

Sunday night is shaping up to be a big one as we host our first double header of the season at AAMI Park.

Before Patrick Kisnorbo’s A-League squad face Perth at 6.40pm, you’ll be able to catch City in action in the W-League with the fixture against Brisbane kicking off at 4.05pm.

City suffered a 2-1 loss in its last W-League match against Adelaide so will be looking to bounce back with a win at home, meanwhile Kisnorbo’s men will be looking to back up their 2-1 win at home against Western a fortnight ago.


Our last home game for the next few weeks

Unfortunately following this fixture, we will not be playing again at home for a while with our next four fixtures all away trips.

With the COVID-19 situation having improved in New South Wales after games were initially postponed earlier in the season, we will face Central Coast, Newcastle and then Western Sydney before we again face Perth – this time away from home.

While we of course would love to have to be playing at home in front of our fans, there will be plenty of home fixtures to come later in the season.

Young guns continuing to stand up

Our last match against Western United saw 19-year-old Taras Gomulka make his first start for City and he impressed, filling in the role of the injured Aiden O’Neill.

18-year-old Kerrin Stokes made his A-League debut after being subbed on late in the first half and instantly looked like he belonged at the level, forming a partnership with Curtis Good that would not concede from the point of the substitution.

Marco Tilio and Stefan Colakovski also got subbed on late in the second half as Kisnorbo searched for pace and both players didn’t take long to make an impact with Colakovski also recording the assist for Maclaren’s winner.

Keeping our undefeated AAMI Park streak alive

It has been over 13 months since we last suffered a loss at AAMI Park and Kisnorbo’s men will be eager to keep that streak alive and walk away with three points on Sunday.

The streak currently sits at seven games, with the Club recording wins in five of those fixtures.

The chance to continue to climb the table

At this stage it is hard to interpret or read too far into the A-League table due to some sides having played more games than others with border restrictions playing an impact.

That being said, we currently are sitting sixth on the table with two wins and a loss coming from our first three fixtures.

Sunday will provide an opportunity to bank a valuable three points at home ahead of the upcoming away trips and improve our standing on the table as we look to ensure we start the season strongly.
