Mariners Matchday Squad | Game 8 v Wellington Phoenix

Mariners Matchday Squad | Game 8 v Wellington Phoenix

Alen Stajcic has named an unchanged squad for Sunday’s clash with the Phoenix, as the Mariners look to build on momentum from last week’s wins against Melbourne City and Western United.

With a week off after three matches in eight days the squad has almost an entirely clean bill of health, with only Jordan Smylie unavailable but expected to be rejoining training next week.

Max Balard and Stefan Jankovic have also been added to last week’s group of 18 to round out the extended squad.

The Mariners will be aiming to avenge the earlier game between these two sides, when Jaushua Sotirio’s late goal snatched a win for the Phoenix after the hosts had much of the play.
