Team News: City confirm Derby squad
Melbourne City FC has confirmed its squad for Sunday’s Melbourne Derby.
Unfortunately due to the current lockdown in Victoria, this fixture will be played behind closed doors with no fans permitted to attend. You’ll be able to catch the match live of Fox Sports, Kayo and the My Football Live app with kick-off set for 4.05pm.
With three players off on Socceroos duty, there’s been a bit of a shake up to the City squad with Head Coach Patrick Kisnorbo adding five players to his extended squad. The line-up and substitutes will be confirmed via our social channels at 3pm on Sunday.
Coming into the squad are Captain Scott Jamieson, Craig Noone, Rostyn Griffiths, Anthony Lesiotis and Kerrin Stokes.
