The team is in for Saturday night’s clash with Wellington. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.
There are five inclusions to this week’s squad as the Australian U23’s representatives depart the A-League for the tournament that could see them miss up to three weeks of domestic action.
Stefan Mauk, Ruon Tongyik and Bruce Kamau join Ante Milicic’s side in China, opening the door to a range of inclusions for Warren Joyce’s squad.
The January transfer window has opened at an opportune time for City as Dario Vidosic and Harrison Delbridge come into the mix with both players being eligible to play their first match for the Club this weekend.
Manny Muscat also returns to the fray after serving his two-match suspension while Marcelo Carrusca and Neil Kilkenny have been added to the extended side that will be cut down by two, 90 minutes before kick-off.
