Both the Central Coast Mariners and Brisbane Roar have named their provisional squads ahead of Sunday’s fixture at Central Coast Stadium.
The only change to Mike Mulvey’s squad is the addition of Kye Rowles who returns from a one-week-suspenion. It adds a welcomed defensive headache for Mulvey, with Aiden O’Neill offering cover as a defender against City in their 2-1 win.
Good morning, Mariners fans! ??
