The team is in for Sunday’s Star Wars Round clash with the Central Coast at AAMI Park. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s squad for the contest.
City will look to use last week’s winning momentum to return home to face the high-flying Mariners at AAMI Park.
Warren Joyce has brought back Osama Malik from suspension with the midfielder serving his one-match ban for the VAR red card he picked up against Perth. Despite his return, Joyce will see last week’s match winner Manny Muscat spend a week on the sideline, accumulating 5 yellow cards in the opening nine matches.
Y-League hat-trick hero Braedyn Crowley, Ramy Najjarine and Neil Kilkenny have also been added to the final 18 man squad that will be cut down by two 90 minutes before kick-off.
May the force be with you this Sunday for our Star Wars Round double header! Our W-League side take on Canberra United at 4.30pm while our A-League side kick-off at 7pm. Get your tickets today and claim your kids go free tickets!
