Big names added for Adelaide trip


Ahead of the Central Coast Mariners’ Hyundai A-League round 20 fixtures against Adelaide United, Paul Okon has named a provisional squad.

After one week on the sideline through suspension, the Mariners welcome back captain Alan Baro. The return of El Capitan is a welcomed one for Okon with fellow centre-back, Antony Golec suspended due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

Connor Pain has completed his road to recovery after sustaining a hamstring injury against the Newcastle Jets in round 15 and is available for selection to take on the Reds.

The Central Coast Mariners will depart Tuggerah on Friday afternoon in pursuit of three points in Adelaide.
