Spencer missed City’s clash with Melbourne Victory last weekend, but returns for City’s Round 11 clash, strengthening Head Coach Rado Vidosic’s attacking options.

Matildas international Kyah Simon will miss the clash, with the attacker being ruled out for the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.
