Team News: Kisnorbo confirms squad for Newcastle trip

City Head Coach Patrick Kisnorbo has confirmed his squad for the team’s final match before the World Cup break.

It’s been a strong start to the season for your City boys, currently sitting top of the table having only dropped points once in their first six games.

An away trip to Newcastle awaits this weekend, with City looking to finish the first phase of the season with another important three points.

Nuno Reis will miss the clash due to concussion following a heavy knock against Perth, but the defender has recovered well and been in good spirits around the club this past week.

Thomas Lam returns to the squad after serving his suspension last week, which could make things a simple as a straight swap at the back for Kisnorbo come Saturday evening.

Young guns Arion Sulemani and Raphael Borges Rodrigues have also both been added to City’s extended squad.
