The Central Coast Mariners will be spending their Christmas Day training and travelling in preparation for our away trip against Adelaide United. Let’s find out who’s eligible to make the trip.
After one of the most unique matches in the history of the Hyundai A-League the Mariners had two players shown yellow that were controversially upgraded to red cards via the VAR system (Video Assistant Referee).
This results in both Jake McGing & Wout Brama serving mandatory one game suspensions.
In positive news for the Mariners, Storm Roux made a return from injury off the bench last week and could return to his familiar role at right back to cover the absence of in-form Jake McGing.
Fellow Dutch midfielder, Tom Hiariej still remains in doubt - which makes for an interesting selection proposition for Paul Okon heading into Christmas.
In more exciting news, Terrigal junior Lachlan Wales could very well skip Christmas on the Coast to make his second appearance in the Hyundai A-League – a reward for his impressive showing in the Foxtel National Youth League.
