AUCKLAND, New Zealand - Auckland City FC take on Metro FC at the Croatian Cultural Centre this evening and assistant coach Ivan Vicelich takes control of the side with Albert Riera isolating.

A handful of changes are made with goalkeeper Cam Brown getting the nod ahead of Conor Tracey, Reid Drake is in for Aidan Carey and Ryan De Vries also returns instead of Dylan Manickum who drops out of the squad.

A recent New Zealand international call-up for midfielder Cam Howieson has given everyone a boost as he heads off on Sunday.
