Team News: City’s Round 17 squad


The team is in for Sunday’s clash with Sydney. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.

City will look to bounce back from last week’s loss to Wellington with another unchanged squad for the contest.

The late exclusion of Curtis Good from the team that took on the Nix has seen him overcome his niggle as he returns to the team and is likely to play a role in the final squad. The short turn-around from Tuesday’s home match against Western Sydney played against Good and the Melbourne-born defender will be fit and firing for Sunday’s encounter.

Dario Vidosic has also been named in the extended squad as he continues his recovery from a back issue that has kept him out of the past three weeks. The midfielder player 64 minutes in the Y-League side’s clash with Adelaide last Friday and looks to be a part of the selection mix come Sunday.

Youngster Moudi Najjar and Ramy Najjarine also retain their spot in the extended squad as the duo continue to gain valuable senior minutes.

City face Sydney FC on Sunday at Jubilee Stadium, kick-off 5pm.
