O’Sullivan names provisional squad to face Sydney FC


Central Coast Mariners Caretaker Coach, Wayne O’Sullivan has named a provisional squad who are available for selection to take on Sydney FC this Saturday. Kick-off is 5:35pm at Central Coast Stadium.

Golec has returned to NSW after successful surgery in Melbourne and will commence his recovery from a fractured tibial plateau. Fellow centre-back Alan Baro remains in rehab due to the minor hamstring injury he incurred against Perth Glory.
