The Central Coast Mariners face a mouthwatering battle against Sydney FC on Saturday night and Paul Okon has today named a provisional squad.
With seven players unavailable for last week’s match against Melbourne City, that number has been reduced with Andrew Hoole and Josh Rose returning from suspension whilst Wout Brama looks set to return from a hamstring injury.
Connor Pain remains on the road to recovery from the hamstring injury he sustained against the Newcastle Jets.
The Central Coast Mariners will wait to assess the conditions of Danny De Silva, Trent Buhagiar & Tom Glover who will return to Australia from China with the Australian Under 23’s.
