The team is in for Saturday’s clash with Adelaide. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side in our Team News presented by Lotus Living.
City fans will have the chance to see the Club’s new signings for the first time on Saturday night with Jamie Maclaren and Shayon Harrison selected in the extended side to take on the Reds.
The duo touched down in Sydney to take part in the pre-match preparations for last week’s match to get accustomed to the side and with a full week of training under their belt, both will look to make their City debut.
There will be a re-shuffle in the midfielder for City with Kearyn Baccus out due to the accumulation of yellow cards. The former Western Sydney man picked up his fifth yellow against Sydney FC, meaning he’ll have to sit Saturday night out.
Youngster Ramy Najjarine has also been added to the final 18 that will be cut down by two, 90 minutes before kick-off.
