Franjic, Jakobsen ruled out of Melbourne City's clash with Wellington

Ivan Franjic
Melbourne City right-back Ivan Franjic won't travel to New Zealand to take on the Wellington Phoenix.

Melbourne City will be without key defensive pair Michael Jakobsen and Ivan Franjic for Saturday's match against A-League rivals Wellington.

Jakobsen (calf) and Franjic (knee soreness) won't make the trip across the Tasman after falling short in their rehabilitation.

The Danish centre-back and Socceroos right-back didn't play in last Saturday's 2-2 draw with Brisbane.

The long flight to Wellington has been a factor in leaving the defenders out, with both likely to come into contention for next weekend's clash with leaders Sydney FC.

While the loss of the club's two most-important defenders cannot be overlooked, coach Michael Valkanis has many more players to choose from against the Phoenix than he did last week.

Six players -- Bruno Fornaroli, Tim Cahill, Osama Malik, Manny Muscat, Luke Brattan and Fernando Brandan -- are available once more after serving one-match suspensions that had left City dangerously short of senior options last week.

Phoenix linkman Gui Finkler won't play a part in the match after flying to Brazil to meet his newborn daughter.
