Head Coach Alen Stajcic has named an unchanged 20-man squad to take on Melbourne City from the group named for Sunday’s win against Perth Glory.
The squad travelled from Perth to Melbourne during the week to remove an extra leg of travel, looking to benefit tired legs with a short turnaround between Sunday’s victory at HBF Park and Friday’s meeting with top of the table City at AAMI Park.
Stajcic’s group came through the win largely unscathed, with the boss clearing Danny DeSilva of any concerns after he came out of the game early on Sunday and that bodes well for a full-strength side to take on the ladder leaders at AAMI Park as part of Remembrace Round.
John Roberts remains unavailable while away on duty with the Young Socceroos.
