Team News: City confirm squad for Perth clash

Head Coach Patrick Kisnorbo has confirmed his extended squad to take on Perth Glory at AAMI Park this Saturday evening.

City comes into this fixture undefeated and sitting top of the table, but was held to a draw for the first time this season last time out.

Jamie Maclaren continued his hot form netting his fifth goal in four games, while Marco Tilio was also on the scoresheet before Wellington hit back late to salvage a point.

A second yellow card in the dying stages of that fixture to Thomas Lam will see the Finnish international miss this weeks clash through suspension, but it may be a straightforward call for Kisnorbo on his replacement.

After going close to a return last weekend, Nuno Reis has again been included in City’s squad. Now with a few more training sessions under his belt, he’ll be right in the mix for a return for the starting line-up for what would be his first minutes of the season.

Arion Sulemani and Luke Oresti have also both been added, while Florin Berenguer continues his rehab from a hamstring injury.
