Central Coast Mariners Head Coach Phil Moss has selected an initial 17-player squad for this Friday-s Hyundai A-League 2013/14 Round 19 clash against Josep Gombau-s Adelaide United at Coopers Stadium.
After accumulating five yellow cards in the opening 17 rounds of the competition, combative midfielder Nick Montgomery returns to the Mariners- matchday squad having served his one-game suspension against Melbourne Victory last weekend.
The Club-s new Korean recruit Kim Seung-yong has also been included in the matchday squad, with the Mariners hopeful the former Ulsan Hyundai and Gamba Osaka gun-s International Transfer Clearance (ITC) will be received by kick-off on Friday.
Eddy Bosnar and Isaka Cernak made solid debuts for the yellow and navy last weekend, and are both in line for more game time against the Reds.
With the Club-s first 2014 AFC Champions League fixture on the horizon, Central Coast Mariners boss Moss is also looking at giving a number of first team squad members match minutes when the Club-s Youth side takes on Perth Glory Youth at Pluim Park, Lisarow, on Sunday 16 February.
