Australian Football: Corica hints at Narsingh selection

Sydney FC head coach Steve Corica is considering pitching recent recruit Luciano Narsingh into the derby clash with Western Sydney Wanderers.

The 31-year-old Dutch forward signed a deal running until the end of the A-League season a couple of weeks ago, with the Sky Blues 12/1 to win the Grand Final this season.

And Corica is content that Narsingh will not be fazed by being handed his debut in a potentially fiery local derby, with the 19-time Netherlands international having experienced the big time with both PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord.

Narsingh ready for action

He told reporters: "He's been over for almost two weeks now and he's done all the sessions. He's looking fit. He's got some good touches.

"He needs to play games to get fitter as well, because he hasn't played many of them of late.

"We want to try and get him in as soon as possible and we still have a lot of games coming up for him to do that. He's looking really good."

Corica is hoping that the derby showdown will re-ignite his team's season, with the Sky Blues having dropped down to sixth place in the A-League standings on the back of a four-game run without a win.

He added: "We need to win, of course, because we've had a couple of losses on the trot which is not great.

"Derbies are always very fiery. Both teams are up for the derby and I'm sure this is going to be no different especially at their ground."
