The team is in for Saturday’s clash with Newcastle. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s squad.
City will look to keep their impressive record against the Jets at AAMI Park in tact on Saturday as they look to maintain second spot on the table.
The big news is that Markel Susaeta will look to make his City debut on the weekend, pending his visa approval. The forward has played over 500 matches for Athletic Bilbao and will look to grace the Hyundai A-League for the first time on Saturday.
Harrison Delbridge also returns to the side after serving his one-match suspension and the defender will be likely to return to the eleven with Richard Windbichler still out with a hamstring.
Despite a positive week of recovery, Scott Galloway will miss this week due to the ankle injury he picked up late against Brisbane. Scans revealed the defender had avoided major injury but will miss this week at minimum with a moderate ligament sprain.
City face Newcastle in a massive double head on Saturday at AAMI Park. Kick-off 5pm for the W-League, 7.30pm for the A-League. Tickets via Ticketek.
