Melling to miss A-League finals

Heatbreak for young Melbourne City midfielder, Jacob Melling, who has been ruled out of the A-League finals with a knee injury.

Melling will also miss the last game of the regular season against his former club Adelaide United after undergoing surgery to his right knee on Monday.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a breakout season with City, making 14 senior appearances in the club’s 2014/15 campaign.

He sustained the injury at training last week and will immediately start rehabilitation ahead of the new season.
