Australian Football: City wait on injured duo

Melbourne City have fitness concerns over Scott Jamieson and Marco Tilio after they picked up injuries in Tuesday night's 2-1 loss against Adelaide United.

City are out to win the A-League minor premiership but missed a great chance to go to the top of the ladder following the defeat at AAMI Park.

Dominant City display

City dominated the game but ended up on the wrong end of the result after missing a host of chances before gifting the visitors the winner.

Carl Jenkinson was the culprit in the 82nd minute when his loose backpass was jumped on by Mohamed Toure and the Reds striker fired the ball home.

Kisnorbo to lose key quartet

"We dominated. They had two shots, one was a cross, the other was a backpass from us," coach Patrick Kisnorbo told reporters after the game. "We had a lot of possession, we were creating a lot of chances in good areas. Obviously we didn't score them.

"Those ones, sometimes it's a bit hard to take especially when you dominate the game for 90 minutes and you end up losing 2-1."

Injury concerns

Just to make matters even worse it looks as though City's three games in the space of eight days has taken its toll with both Jamieson and Tilio leaving the field with hamstring and calf issues respectively.

"(Tilio) was having some tightness in the calves. That was unexpected," Kisnorbo added. "Sometimes you can't plan for that. We would've liked to have got more out of Marco but for some reason his calves were a bit tight, hence why we had to make the substitution early.

"Jamo felt a little tweak and we didn't want to risk it."
