Gameday squad: Staj names his side for round one


The Hyundai A-League 2019/20 season is finally upon us, and Alen Stajcic has named his Central Coast Mariners squad to take on the Wanderers at Bankwest Stadium.

The Mariners will kick-off their season at 5pm on Saturday afternoon, as the two sides play out the first Hyundai A-League clash at the brand new Bankwest Stadium.

It’s almost a full-strength squad for the clash, with only Eunsun Kim and Ruon Tongyik set to miss out, with both players nearing a return to full fitness, while Gianni Stensness returns from helping New Zealand qualify for the Tokyo Olympics and could be in line to kick-off the season.

Matt Simon will also miss the game after he was shown two yellow cards in the FFA Cup loss to Adelaide.
