Alen Stajcic has named his squad for Sunday’s Hyundai A-League round seven clash against Western United at Central Coast Stadium, with new signing Jair named for a potential first appearance in Yellow & Navy.
Jair signed with the team at the beginning of the week and said he is excited for this weekend's clash and to help the team moving forward.
Daniel DeSilva and Kye Rowles are both named for a return after they missed Saturday’s loss against Adelaide United in a massive boost for the Mariners, but the Mariners will be without top goalscorer Milan Ðurić after the Serbian midfielder was ruled out with a hip complaint.
