The teams are in for Saturday’s Round 15 clash with Perth Glory at nib Stadium. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.
City’s rich vein of form has seen them come into this week’s contest unchanged with Steve Kuzmanovski and Ali Eyigun added to the extended side that will be cut down to 16 90 minutes before kick-off.
Ivan Franjic will miss one more week with a corked quad still affecting the full-back while Stefan Mauk remains on Olyroos camp in Qatar.
Kenny Lowe’s Glory see significant returns to their line up with Nebo Marinkovic and Michael Thwaite headlining their in’s.
Perth were defeated by the resurgent Adelaide United last week 3-1 and are winless in four matches.
