Central Coast Mariners Head Coach Phil Moss has named an initial 18-player squad for Tuesday-s Hyundai A-League round 12 clash against Perth Glory at Bluetongue Stadium.

Defender Brent Griffiths and midfielder Anthony Caceres have been promoted to the squad which lost 2-0 to Western Sydney Wanderers in Parramatta last week.

The Mariners last played Perth Glory in round 7 this season, winning 2-1 in the west thanks to goals from Michael McGlinchey and an injury time winner to Mitchell Duke.

The game was Phil Moss-s first in full charge of the Mariners, and Moss will be hoping for glory once more when Kenny Lowe-s purple-whites arrive at the Club-s idyllic bayside base for the final Hyundai A-League fixture of 2013.

Kick-off is at 6:00pm, with fireworks on the banks of the Brisbane Water following soon after the completion of the encounter at 9:00pm.

Tickets start from just $12 for kids and $24 for adults.
