The Mariners extended group has been named for Saturday as Alen Stajcic and his side prepare for a huge A-League matchup with Sydney FC at Central Coast Stadium.
Ruon Tongyik will miss this match after picking up his fifth yellow card of the campaign last weekend against Western United, and Lewis Miller has been added to the squad as defensive cover.

Daniel DeSilva has also been added back in, having missed last week’s game with a toe injury however Stajcic said he was ‘50/50’ to play during Friday’s media session.
“He’s got to get through today’s training,” Stajcic said.
“At the moment he is 50/50 so we will just see if he can get through that and if he does he’ll be available, and if not hopefully he’ll be available midweek or maybe even next week against Victory.”
“There’s a bit of a battle there for that centre-back spot [with Ruon out] but everyone else is available.”
