The team is in for Saturday afternoon’s Melbourne Derby. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.
Head Coach Rado Vidosic has made three changes ahead of Saturday afternoon’s clash with Melbourne Victory at Epping Stadium.
Youngsters Sofia Sakalis and Nia Stamatopoulos come into the squad, alongside Matildas international Kyah Simon.
Simon was a late withdrawal from City’s starting XI against Western Sydney on New Year’s Day, but has been given until match-day to prove her fitness.
American import Jasmyne Spencer misses the clash due to personal reasons.
City take on Melbourne Victory at Epping Stadium on Saturday 5 January, kick-off 4:00pm, before hosting Brisbane Roar at AAMI Park on Friday 11 January, kick-off 5:20pm.
The squad of 16 will be cut down by two, 60-minutes prior to kick-off on Saturday afternoon.
