Kenny Lowe has announced a 18 man squad ahead of the “People-s Game- sponsored by QBE" against Central Coast Mariners on Saturday evening at nib Stadium KO 6:45pm.
With this being Glory-s final home game of the 2013/14 Hyundai A League season, both Lowe and the players will be looking to finish off on a high after last week-s morale boosting 2-1 win over Newcastle Jets.
Included in the squad is Danny De Silva, who returns after being granted leave to travel to Europe with his family for contract discussions with a high profile club and midfielder, Cameron Edwards, who returns after impressive displays with the Perth Glory NPL side in recent weeks.
Both William Gallas and Rostyn Griffiths are included in the squad despite picking up injuries in last week-s win, with young Brandon O-Neill, who replaced Gallas at half time last week, standing by.
Darvydas Sernas, Jamie Maclaren and Chris Harold look to be fighting it out for a starting position up front and Brazilian, Sidnei Sciola Moraes will be hoping the impact he had off the bench against the Jets is rewarded with a start.
Central Coast Coach, Phil Moss, will bring a 17 man squad West with midfielder, Glen Trifiro, the only new addition to the team that beat Western Sydney Wanderers last weekend The Mariners, who will be looking to cement second position on the A League ladder come into the game on the back of a win over Chinese club Beijing Guoan in the Asian Champions League on Tuesday night in Gosford.
