Our squad to take on Melbourne Victory this Saturday night has been locked in!
City come into the first Derby of the season in red hot form, sitting top of the table after comprehensive wins over Western United and Brisbane Roar in the first two weeks of the season.
Head Coach Patrick Kisnorbo will be hoping to see his team continue its good form when it faces its biggest challenge of the season so far this Saturday night.
He’ll be without Taras Gomulka, the midfielder missing through suspension after being shown a straight red card last time out against Brisbane Roar.
Max Caputo and Arion Sulemani have both been promoted to the squad, while Curtis Good also has been included and is a chance to return from injury.
Nuno Reis and Florin Berenguer remain out with hamstring injuries, although the former is closing in on a return.
