Squad News: Mariners v City


With just a four-day turnaround to contend with, Mike Mulvey has named a provisional squad of players available for selection on the eve of our home game against Melbourne City. Kick-off at Central Coast Stadium is 7:50pm.

After serving a one-week-suspension due to an accumulation of yellow cards, Burnley Loanee Aiden O’Neill becomes available for selection to face City. As a midfielder comes back in from suspension, we lose a defender in Kye Rowles who was shown red against the Phoenix and will serve a one match suspension.

After back soreness which saw Josh Macdonald miss training sessions last week, scans have cleared Macdonald to return to full training this week. After travelling with the squad to Wellingon, Josh Nisbet remains in contention.
