We are edging closer towards the end of the A-Leagues seasons, with every point becoming more and more valuable.
City’s Women are set for their first home match since January, taking on ladder-leaders Sydney FC at Kingston Heath on Saturday.
Dario Vidosic’s squad has been buoyed by the inclusion of Daniela Galic with the 16-year-old midfielder having returned from Young Matildas duty, while Karly Roestbakken has also been included in the squad after missing recent games through a foot injury.
Looking across to Rado’s Men’s squad, a trip interstate to face Macarthur FC at Campbelltown Stadium awaits this Sunday.
A trio of youngsters in Raphael Borges Rodrigues, Kerrin Stokes and Max Caputo return to the squad, but Finnish international, Thomas Lam, is set to miss through suspension due to yellow card accumulation.
