Craig Deans has named a 17-woman squad for Sunday afternoon’s clash with Melbourne City.
With injuries largely evading the Jets W-League side, it’s allowed Deans to name an unchanged squad for this weekend’s clash.

With two to be omitted, much will hinge on the fitness of gun American striker, Katie Stengel.
She picked up an ankle injury in training throughout the week, and is touch and go ahead of this Sunday’s 2:30pm kickoff.
Should she miss out, it could see the likes of Pana Petratos or Renee Pountney return to the gameday squad and potentially make a difference from the bench.
Cortnee Vine was on the bench last weekend and after a solid week in training, she’ll have given the coach, Craig Deans plenty to think about.
