Team News: Grand Final (W) / Matchday 17 (M)

Melbourne Victory is eyeing back-to-back Liberty A-League Women’s Championships on Sunday with a healthy squad to select from.

Melina Ayres‘ late season return following an injury riddled campaign has been a huge addition and a major reason for the team’s recent success.

Amy Jackson‘s return has also been influential, giving coach Jeff Hopkins the flexibility of a full squad to craft a winning line-up.

Kyra Cooney-Cross scored the winner in last year’s decider and will again be a key player.

Captain Kayla Morrison, who remains out after a Round 1 knee injury, will be in the hearts of the team on Sunday.

In the Men’s squad, Chris Ikonomidis returned from a hamstring injury on Wednesday night, coming off the bench in the 68th minute.

Matt Spiranovic (covid protocols) and Robbie Kruse (knee) will miss.

Nick D’Agostino and Ben Folami remain unavailable as they represent Australia in World Cup Qualifiers.
