Get set for an Easter Sunday Blockbuster

THE biggest match of the Central Coast Mariners 2011/12 Hyundai A-League season (so far!) will be held at Bluetongue Stadium this Easter Sunday, kicking off at 5pm.

THE biggest match of the Central Coast Mariners 2011/12 Hyundai A-League season (so far!) will be held at Bluetongue Stadium this Easter Sunday, kicking off at 5pm.

The Hyundai A-League major semi-final second leg pits Graham Arnold-s table-toppers against Ange Postecoglou-s crafty Roar unit in what is expected to be a pulsating encounter.

Roar won the first leg of the major semi-final 2-0 at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane last Saturday, but the Mariners will leave nothing on the park in their bid to overturn the deficit and advance directly to the Hyundai A-League Grand Final.

With Roar expected to return tired and weary from their exertions in Asia during the week, and the Mariners fit and healthy following a week spent preparing on the Coast, Arnold-s side will take to the field fresh and confident that they can trump Roar.

The day is set to be a special one for Mariners fans, players and staff alike, with the club to be presented the Hyundai A-League Premiership Plate just minutes before kick-off in the much anticipated clash.

Alex Wilkinson and Graham Arnold may get to be the first people to lift the Plate, but don-t miss your opportunity to applaud the players for their stunning regular season, then re-direct your energy to help get them turn the tables on Brisbane!
