The team is in for Friday’s Melbourne Derby. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.

Melbourne City will look to put last week’s result against Adelaide behind them as they prepare for the 32nd edition of the Melbourne Derby.

Captain Scott Jamieson returns to the selection mix after served a one match ban for his fifth yellow card of the season. The full back is likely to slot back into his regular spot for the contest.

The midfield will also be bolstered with Adrian Luna looking to make a return to the squad. The Uruguayan suffered a knee knock last week and has been deemed fit for his third taste of the Melbourne Derby.

Two forced outs for City come at the centre back position as Harrison Delbridge and Jack Hendry miss the contest.

Delbridge’s third red card of the season will see him miss two weeks through suspension while Hendry will miss an extended period with a torn MCL ligament in his knee.

Youngsters Stefan Colacovski and Kerrin Stokes have also been added to the extended side that will be cut down by two, 90 minutes before kick-off.

Melbourne City face Victory on Friday night at AAMI Park, kick-off 7.30pm. Tickets via Ticketek.
