Brosque’s selection comes after his stunning second-half hat-trick in the Sky Blues’ 5-2 win over Central Coast Mariners.

Meanwhile, Galekovic made the cut for his man-of-the-match display in City’s 2-0 win over Western Sydney Wanderers on New Years’ Day.
The experienced shot-stopper made six vital saves in the 90 minutes, including an incredible penalty stop to deny Oriol Riera.
Galekovic’s overall rating is 72, with diving (75) and handling (73) his best attributes.
