Ins & Outs: Experience returns for Gosford trip


We will welcome back a number of experienced heads for Sunday’s Hyundai A-League clash against the Mariners in Gosford (6pm KO QLD time).

Two of the Club’s longest-serving players in Club captain Matt McKay & defender Jack Hingert to the 18-man squad after both missing the midweek contest against the Victory.

Danish international Tobias Mikkelsen also returns to the squad, as does versatile defender Jacob Pepper.

We will be looking to build upon a strong record in Gosford, having won its last five matches at Central Coast Stadium and not suffering a defeat since March 2013.

A result would also see an unbeaten streak against the Mariners stretch to 14 matches.
