Alen Stajcic has named his preliminary 20-man group for Sunday afternoon as the Mariners get set to welcome Western Sydney Wanderers to Central Coast Stadium.
The Mariners are looking to bounce back after Saturday’s defeat to Brisbane Roar, while the Wanderers are back in action for the first time since their loss to Perth and the subsequent departure of Head Coach Markus Babbel.

The 18 from last weekend’s starting team and bench remains unchanged, while youngsters Dylan Ruiz-Diaz and Abraham Majok have both been named to the group by Stajcic.
The occasion is set to be a big one with both teams aiming to return to winning ways, but Mark Birighitti will have a personal milestone to celebrate as he appears in his 100th Hyundai A-League match.
