The squad is in for Sunday as the Mariners prepare to take on Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park in A-League Match Week 19.
Alen Stajcic will be without Costa Rican forward Marco Urena through suspension after he picked up a straight red card in Wednesday’s loss to Brisbane, but livewire young forward Alou Kuol rejoins the extended group after missing that game through illness.
The match will be the Mariners fourth in just 15 days and will be followed by a 10-day break ahead of the team’s visit to Brisbane to face the Roar once more in Match Week 20.
“We had Alou out the other night, he had a viral infection so he’s back healthy again and we’ve obviously got other options on the bench,” Stajcic said of replacing Urena.
“Dan Bouman has played up front, Jordan Smylie has played a bit up front, so we’ve got other options up our sleeve and we’ll just wait go get through training and see what option we go with.”
