5 things to look forward to: City v Adelaide

Our last double

The legend of the 'Boss' continues

Ross McCormack became the quickest player to notch 13 goals in their maiden A-League season when he found the back of the net in the 42nd minute against the Central Coast Mariners in Round 16.

The City forward is now only two goals behind Sydney FC’s Bobo, who leads the race for the league’s Golden Boot.

With six goals in four games, the Scotsman is beginning to hit his straps down under, so get down to AAMI Park on Sunday to witness the clinical striker in action. 

Chance to cement a spot in the top-three

City currently sits in third position on the league ladder, three points ahead of the fourth-placed Melbourne Victory and four points ahead of the fifth-placed Adelaide United.

As the business end of the season fast approaches, it’s crucial that City capitalises on their home advantage and continues their solid run of form. 

Three points on Sunday, and City breaks away from Adelaide in fifth and mounts the pressure on the second-placed Newcastle Jets – who City host next Thursday, 25th January at AAMI Park.

Lights, camera, ACTION!

Bart Schenkeveld, Michael Jakobsen, Scott Jamieson and co will need to be at their best on Sunday as they face an exuberant Adelaide United, full of confidence following their scoreless draw with Sydney FC.

Marco Kurz’s team may not lead the competition for goals scored, but when it comes to shots, they sit clear on top.

There is no doubt both sides will have chances to win the match on Sunday but it'll be down to who takes them with both hands. The clash always brings fireworks between the sides with the fixture meaning so much to so many in both camps.

Well-earned rest

City faced their toughest schedule for the season last week, travelling over 8,000 kilometres to play three games in eight days.

Despite their challenging period, Warren Joyce’s side walked away with seven points from a possible nine – which included coming from behind twice against the Mariners with 10 men.

Following a well-deserved seven-day break, City will be refreshed and raring to go against the Reds on Sunday with back-to-back home matches in the next fortnight.
