18-man squad announced for the Central Coast this Sunday

The squads are in for Sunday afternoon's clash with the Central Coast Mariners in Gosford. See who's in and who's out for our final match before the Asian Cup break.

The inclusion of Jonatan Germano from the long-term injury list headlines the returns for Melbourne City FC as they head to Gosford to make it five matches unbeaten.

Paulo Retre joins the Argentinian in the provisional side as Jacob Melling is the unlucky man to miss out after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against the Jets.

Massimo Murdocca and Jason Hoffman are still one to two weeks away from returning from the squad with the duo battling with an ankle and back strain respectively.

The Mariners see the return of Nick Montgomery to the provisional side as Phil Moss takes in the same side that picked up a 0-0 draw with the Western Sydney Wanderers on New Years Day.
