Team News: City’s Round 16 squad


The team is in for Sunday’s Round 16 clash with the Central Coast Mariners. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.

Another week, another short turn-around as City complete their busy three matches in eight days away at Central Coast Stadium.

Warren Joyce’s side will be buoyant after picking up a win from two days rest and the Club’s longest away trip. With a shorter trip to Gosford and a slightly longer period on the track, three wins from three will not be out of the question come Sunday.

Newcomers Harrison Delbridge and Dario Vidosic have retained their spots in the squad, with both players looking comfortable despite their short time with the team.

It’s another relatively unchanged squad to take on the Mariners as the young duo of Ramy Najjarine and Connor Metcalfe come into the equation for the contest.

Iacopo La Rocca also comes into the extended side with Marcelo Carrusca being the man omitted.

City will reduce their extended squad by two, 90 minutes before kick-off as Warren Joyce finalises his squad on match day.

City face the Central Coast on Sunday at Central Coast Stadium, kick-off 5pm. See the match live on FOX Sports 501.
