Fans will able to watch Irish star Damien Duff, who played in the world's biggest league, charge through midfield in Epsom
IT'S not every day that central Victorian fans have the opportunity to watch A-League stars without having to travel far to do so.
Melbourne City's plan to field a strong line-up for next Tuesday's clash with FC Bendigo is a boon just six days out from the clash at Epsom-Huntly Reserve.
Fans will be able to watch Irish star and now City winger Damien Duff, pictured, strut his stuff.
Duff has played more than 100 matches for Ireland and played in two English Premier League championship campaigns with Chelsea.
Just how FC Bendigo works to limit Duff's influence on the contest will have fans enthralled.
Striker David Williams is another of City's stars who will draw plenty of attention from FC Bendigo's defence and fans in a contest being played on the main AFL oval at the Epsom-Huntly complex.
It's the second time in four years that City, previously known as Melbourne Heart, will play in Bendigo.
This time it's FC Bendigo, led by playing coach and key defender Steve Martin that will provide strong opposition as City's build-up to season kick-off keeps rolling on.
What a moment this is in FC Bendigo's history.
