This Saturday is a must win battle against Adelaide United and Paul Okon has today named an extended squad ahead of Hyundai A-League round 24.
A resurgent Reds will travel to Central Coast Stadium this weekend full of confidence after their last-ditch win against Brisbane Roar and a 3-3 draw with Jeju United in the AFC Champions League.
A welcomed selection headache looms for Paul Okon in the goalkeeping ranks with Paul Izzo returning from suspension which saw Ivan Necevski step in to deliver a man of the match performance against Sydney FC.
In the Mariners’ last match against Sydney FC, Okon started Josh Bingham and brought Connor Pain on as a substitute. With all attackers from that match fighting fit after a good break, there are some more tough decisions to be made in the front third.
Central Coast Mariners Squad: 1.Ivan NECEVSKI (gk), 2.Storm ROUX, 3.Scott GALLOWAY, 4.Jacob POSCOLIERO, 5.Harry ASCROFT, 7.Fabio FERREIRA, 8.Nick MONTGOMERY (c), 9.Roy O’DONOVAN, 11.Connor PAIN, 12.Trent BUHAGIAR, 13.Kwabena APPIAH, 14.Adam BERRY, 16.Liam ROSE, 17.Josh BINGHAM, 19.Jacques FATY, 20.Paul IZZO (gk), 21.Michael NEILL, 22.Jake McGING
