Perth Glory coach Tony Popovic is ready to bring out the big guns this Saturday, and that spells bad news for Melbourne City.
Popovic heavily rotated his star-studded squad for the recent stretch of three games in seven days.
Six changes to the starting line-up were made for the 3-1 win over Sydney, and Popovic made another five changes for last Sunday's 4-3 win over Western Sydney.
Glory face another challenging period of three games in nine days, starting with Saturday night's clash with Melbourne City at AAMI Park.
And unfortunately for City, Popovic declared he won't be resting any stars for the first fixture.
It means Neil Kilkenny, Matthew Spiranovic, Jason Davidson, and Diego Castro could all be thrust back into the starting line-up.
Kilkenny and Spiranovic were rested completely from the win over Western Sydney, while Castro and Davidson came on at half-time.
Popovic described it as a "great selection headache".
"We'll put out a team that we believe will win this game," Popovic said on Thursday.
"It won't revolve around resting anyone.
"We've had a few days to recharge. It's only a six-day turnaround, but at this stage that feels like a lifetime."
Glory can extend their lead on top of the table back to six points with victory over City.
Warren Joyce's men are now nine points adrift of Glory after suffering a shock 2-1 loss to last-placed Central Coast on Wednesday.
