Sydney FC captain Steve Corica will return to action tonight in a pre-season clash with Penrith Nepean United.

The veteran has had an interrupted pre-season so far with minor surgery but is now ready for action.

“I probably could have come back a bit earlier but I've been speaking with the coach and he obviously wanted me to be 100 per cent right before I came back," he said.

"There's been no rush because we have such a long pre season.

"The boys have been doing really well, they're undefeated so far and haven't conceded a goal. We're getting a lot fitter and I think it's paying off. I'm looking forward to playing my first game."
