The Mariners will return to Central Coast Stadium on Sunday, hosting ladder leaders Sydney FC in Round 20 of the Hyundai A-League.
After the frustrating loss to Adelaide at Coopers Stadium last weekend, Alen Stajcic welcomes back some key faces including skipper Matt Simon to the squad.
Dylan Ruiz-Diaz will miss this outing on account of selection for a Young Socceroos camp in Europe, while Tommy Oar, Jacob Melling and Mario Shabow are all included in the extended squad.
The team will be looking to break a five-match losing streak, with the side winless since the stoppage time win over Melbourne Victory at this venue back in round 14.
