Team News: City’s Round 26 squad


The team is in for Saturday night’s clash with Central Coast at AAMI Park. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.

City look to be hitting their straps at the right time of the season as Warren Joyce’s side head into this week’s clash with the Mariners unbeaten in the last three matches, scoring seven and conceding one.

There is no doubt the consistency in the side has played a role in the recent run of form and this week will hopefully be no different for City, naming another strong side for the contest.

Osama Malik’s positive week on the track has seen him named for Saturday’s clash with the midfielder looking to make his first appearance since the Round 19 clash against Brisbane. Malik’s quad injury has seen him sit six matches on the sidelines and his inclusion will only strengthen the hosts for the contest.

With only two regular season matches before the Finals Series still to play, City will look to not take a backward step against the Central Coast as they work towards securing a home match in week one of the Finals Series.
