Head Coaches Tony Popovic and Jeff Hopkins name their extended squads ahead of Saturday’s double-header.
Our girls in blue are five games unbeaten and will be looking to continue their stellar run of form when they come up against Canberra United on Saturday.
Jeff Hopkins has named an unchanged extended squad from last week’s draw against Wellington Phoenix with Lia Privitelli, Laura Pickett and Rosie Curtis all rejoining the extended squad.
Emma Checker made her return to action at Porirua Park and will no doubt be looking to break back into the starting side in the coming weeks.
