CENTRAL Coast Mariners Head Coach Graham Arnold has named a 21 man squad ahead of Sunday-s sudden death semi-final showdown with Melbourne Victory at Gosford-s Bluetongue Stadium.
The Mariners arrived back on the Central Coast from China late this morning and will train on Friday and Saturday in preparation for Sunday-s do or die contest.
Of the Club-s Hyundai A-League registered players, only attacker Adam Kwasnik has not been named. Kwasnik is out for the current campaign with a knee injury.
Otherwise, Arnold has a plethora of options and aces in his pack to deploy against Victory, with a few sleepless nights in store for the former Qantas Socceroos boss before finalises not only his starting eleven, but his matchday 15.
