Ahead of the Central Coast Mariners’ commute to Western Sydney, Mike Mulvey has named a provisional squad of players who are eligible for selection to take on the Wanderers.
Central defender Kalifa Cisse returns after a one-week suspension which creates competition for places across Mike Mulvey’s back four.
After taking a knock at last Friday’s training session ahead of our battle with Sydney FC, Ross McCormack is putting in the hard yards to be back firing for some Friday night football at Spotless Stadium.
In fantastic news for Mariners’ fans, Jonathan Aspropotamitis’ road to recovery seems almost complete after injuring his ACL with the Western Sydney Wanderers in February. Aspropotamitis has commenced full training with the squad and is now tasked with regaining match fitness ahead of an A-League call up.
