We’re midway through the working week and that means it’s time for our regular look at the latest news coming out of Glory HQ.
Chris Harold is poised to return to the match day squad this weekend having missed the last three games due to a quad injury.
The 25-year-old will be keen to get into the action at nib Stadium having previously scored four times against the Mariners.
Newcastle Jets are the only club Harold has found the net against on more occasions (5).
Fellow-forward Diego Castro, meanwhile, is still being treated for the calf injury that forced him to miss last week’s clash with Western Sydney and will be given until the last minute to prove his fitness.
Nick Feely is set to make his second Hyundai A-League start for the club on Saturday night in place of the suspended Liam Reddy.
Reddy picked up a one-match ban after being adjudged to have brought down Wanderers’ forward Jaushua Sotirio in last week’s 1-1 draw at Spotless Stadium.
The Mariners game will see Feely get his second taste of A-League action this season having come off the bench in Round 12 when Reddy suffered a head injury.
The 25-year-old’s promotion means that there will be a first appearance on the bench for PGFC Academy product Jackson Lee who has been allocated shirt number 40.
Dino Djulbic, however, is reportedly devastated that his impressive cameo between the posts against Western Sydney has not persuaded Kenny Lowe to hand him the gloves for the Mariners clash.

Friends turned foes
There will be plenty of familiar faces in the opposition ranks on Saturday night with ex-Glory men Storm Roux, Danny De Silva, Antony Golec and Jacob Poscoliero all expected to feature in the Mariners’ match day squad.
Central Coast Head Coach Paul Okon and Glory’s Head of Football Jacob Burns, meanwhile, will need no introduction as the pair were teammates at Leeds United during their playing days.
