Ins & outs for Friday’s match against City

Tony Popovic has named his squad for Friday’s Hyundai A-League Round 14 match against Melbourne City at AAMI Park.

Four players have been added to the side, with Scott Neville and Steven Lustica returning from injury and new signings Vedran Janjetovic and Terry Antonis joining the squad for the first time.

Dimas will miss the contest after accumulating five yellow cards, while Brendon Santalab will serve the second of this three-match suspension.

Friday’s game will mark the second league fixture between the pair this season following Round 7’s 1-1 draw at Spotless Stadium.

That night a Neil Kilkenny own-goal cancelled out Tim Cahill’s opener in what was an end-to-end contest in Sydney’s West.

Both the Wanderers and City are coming into this game on the back of draws last week.

The Red & Black were held to a 1-1 draw with Perth Glory at ANZ Stadium, while a 90th minute Bruno Fornaroli penalty rescued a point for City in their 2-2 draw away to the Mariners.

City sit in fourth place on the ladder, six points ahead of the sixth-placed Wanderers.
