Melbourne City are preparing to hand Australia great Tim Cahill a debut, possibly off the bench, in Wednesday night's FFA Cup tie against Brisbane Strikers.

Cahill joined the A-League club last week and City expect FFA will authorise his playing paperwork in time for the trip to Queensland.

The veteran will then travel with the squad for a possible sellout match at Perry Park in north Brisbane.
