Team News: City announce squad for Newcastle clash


Melbourne City FC has confirmed its squad for the final fixture of the 2020/21 A-League season before Finals.

City will travel to New South Wales to take on Newcastle Jets behind closed doors on Thursday night, with the clash set to kick-off at 7.05pm.

Head Coach Patrick Kisnorbo has made three big inclusions to his squad for this fixture.

Winger Andrew Nabbout and defender Nathaniel Atkinson have both been named in the squad after missing extended periods of time through adductor and hamstring injuries respectively. Young gun Stefan Colakovski has also been included in the squad after missing Sunday’s derby due to soreness.

Craig Noone remains sidelined but is expected to be fit for our home Semi Final on Friday 18 June.
