Team News: City’s Elimination Final Squad

The team is in for Friday night’s massive Elimination Final. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s squad.

The big in for City this week is the return of captain Michael Jakobsen from injury. The Dane returns to the selection mix after recovering from his quad niggle that kept him out of last week’s trip to Wellington.

Jakobsen will look to return to his regular spot in the starting side but will have competition for his position after the successful return of Osama Malik from injury. Malik himself returned from a quad injury that kept him out for six weeks and will provide a selection dilemma for Warren Joyce heading into the clash.

Bruno Fornaroli’s return to full fitness took another step forward last week with an impressive goal against the Nix. The Uruguayan and his fellow City attackers will look to make the most of a depleted Brisbane backline on Friday night.

City take on the Roar in the first Elimination Final at AAMI Park, kick-off 7.50pm. Get your tickets for the match today!
