It’s another strong squad for Erick Mombaerts side as City look to clamp down second spot in the league in a traditional six-pointer.

City will bring in defensive cover as Jack Hendry and Scott Galloway make their way into the side. Hendry – City’s latest signing – will look to play his first minutes in City Blue this weekend after signing on loan from Celtic this week. His inclusion to the squad is also pending visa approval.

Galloway on the other hands returns from the ankle injury sustained against Brisbane Roar in Round 14. The fullback has recovered from the mild ligament strain and will be up for selection on Saturday.

The Olyroos remain away for Saturday’s contest – playing on Saturday night against Uzbekistan in the 3rd place play-off – and will be assessed by the performance and medical team upon arrival at CFA Melbourne early next week.

Melbourne City face Perth Glory at AAMI Park on Saturday night, kick-off 7.30pm. Tickets via Ticketek
