Ahead of the Central Coast Mariners trip to AAMI Park, Alen Stajcic has named a provisional squad of players who are eligible to take on Melbourne Victory.
After serving a one week suspension, the Mariners welcome gun midfielder Jem Karacan back to the team. The addition is a timely one, given the Mariners will make the trip without Aiden O’Neill & Kye Rowles who both serve their respective one week suspensions due to an accumulation of yellow cards.
Peter Kekeris & Mario Shabow have also been named in the provisional squad and could be granted an opportunity against the Victory.
Tommy Oar now has a week of running under his belt and is progressing well in his rehabilitation.
Corey Gameiro continues rehab for a minor knee injury, expected back to full training this week.
