Victory names Derby squad

With a new-look Melbourne Derby just around the corner, Melbourne Victory has named its extended squad for Saturday's clash.

Public tickets are all but exhausted and a big crowd is expected to fill Etihad Stadium for the match - the first under the crosstown rival's new moniker, Melbourne City.

General Admission members can also access the game and scan in as normal with their membership card, however we are encouraging all members to arrive early to secure a seat!

Jason Geria has been ruled out of the clash with an ankle injury sustained during Round 2 fixture against Adelaide United last Friday.

Scott Galloway and Dylan Murnane return to the squad, following their Young Socceroos commitments and will be itching to force their way back in to Victory's defensive line up.
