Gameday squad: Extended group is in for behind closed doors clash


Alen Stajcic has named his squad for Friday as the Central Coast Mariners prepare to take on Melbourne City in the Hyundai A-League’s first match behind closed doors.

The Mariners fell to a 1-0 loss against Brisbane last weekend despite looking the stronger team for large parts of the game, and the only casualty from that squad has been Daniel DeSilva as he looks set to miss Friday with injury.

Tommy Oar, Kye Rowles and Dylan Ruiz-Diaz have all been added to the group, and could play a part against City at Central Coast Stadium.
