Team News: City’s Round 8 squad


The team is in for Saturday evening’s crucial clash with Canberra United. See who’s in and who’s out ahead of the match.

Melbourne City has strengthened its side ahead of Saturday’s clash with Canberra, adding experienced defensive midfielder Amy Jackson to the extended squad.  

City captain Steph Catley made her first appearance of the season against Newcastle in Round 6, playing an important role in the first-half before being substituted at half-time. With City sitting out Round 7 with the bye, Catley will be looking to build on her minutes when City host Canberra this weekend.

With no injuries to report, Head Coach Rado Vidosic has a clean bill of health to work with ahead of Saturday’s clash.

The final squad will be cut down by one prior to kick-off on Saturday. City host Canberra United at AAMI Park on Saturday 22 December, kick-off 5:00pm (AEDT).
