Ins & Outs: Wanderers v City

Head coach Marko Rudan has named his extended squad for Sunday afternoon’s clash against Melbourne City. Ins & Outs proudly brought to you by ABAL Banking.

The Red & Black will be looking to bounce back this Sunday, heading into the match after a very disappointing showing against Perth Glory.

Glory’s David Williams skipped past two Wanderers defenders in the box before squeezing the ball to Keegan Jelacic whose left-footed strike went in off the post.

The Wanderers pushed hard for a late equaliser, but the keeper was on hand each time to hold onto a 1-0 victory for Perth.

League-leaders Melbourne City come to town after dismantling reigning champions Western United.

Marco Tilio opened the scoring with a terrific solo effort in the ninth minute with Leo Lacroix’s disastrous own goal, his third of the season, three minutes later putting City in full control on Saturday night.

The Socceroos youngster teed up Jamie Maclaren for City’s third in the 24th minute with Andrew Nabbout adding another in the 84th at AAMI Park.
