Head Coach Patrick Kisnorbo has made three additions to his squad, and City fans will be very excited to see a couple of big names return from injury.

Midfielder Aiden O’Neill has been out of action since sustaining a back injury in Round 2 against Adelaide United, but has now fully recovered and returns to the City squad for Saturday’s derby.

Captain Scott Jamieson is also back to full fitness and has been named in the squad after a calf injury kept him sidelined for the last three weeks. Fellow defender Kerrin Stokes has also been promoted to the squad for Saturday’s huge fixture.
