Team News: City’s Round 7 Squad


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

It’s an unchanged 18 that has been selected for the trip across the Nullabor as City look to string back to back wins against a tough Perth side.

Head Coach Warren Joyce admitted on Sunday that it was unlikely that his side would change significantly ahead of the contest as 17th and 18th men Ramy Najjarine and Connor Metcalfe retain their spot for selection.

Osama Malik has returned to full training and is now available for selection after recovering from his calf injury while Michael O’Halloran is only weeks off from making a full return.

Melbourne City face Perth Glory on Saturday night at nib Stadium. Kick-off 10.pm AEST
