Corica Named For Return

Sydney FC captain Steve Corica will return from injury on Sunday against Newcastle.

Sydney FC Captain Steve Corica will return to lead the side in Sunday’s vital Hyundai A League match against Newcastle.

Corica hasn’t played for the Sky Blues since injuring his hamstring in the 18th minute of the match against the Gold Coast two weeks ago.

In his absence Sydney has lost both matches on the road.

Corica trained with the side this week without any discomfort.
