Melbourne City FC will be looking to make it eight wins from nine games when it plays Sydney FC at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday evening.
Head Coach Patrick Kisnorbo has locked in his squad for Saturday’s fixture, with Nathaniel Atkinson the big omission after injuring his hamstring in Monday’s win against Wellington.
Defenders Kerrin Stokes and Alec Mills have both been promoted to the squad, while attacker Raphael Borges Rodrigues has also been included.
