Australian Football: Mariners ready for Glory test

Central Coast Mariners defender Dan Hall says the players have pulled up well from the 3-3 draw with Macarthur and are ready to go again when they face Perth Glory on Sunday.

It has been a hectic week for the Mariners who are looking to back up last season's finals appearance by making the top six again in the 2021/22 A-League campaign.

Hectic schedule

The Mariners have had to cope with a hectic schedule and on Sunday will play their third game in the space of eight days.

Last Saturday they suffered FFA Cup heartbreak when losing the final to Melbourne Victory then on Thursday night they fought out a 3-3 draw with Macarthur FC.

It was a game in which they trailed 2-0 then led 3-2 before having to settle for a share of the points and they will need to go again just 72 hours later.

However Hall says they are ready and they have done their homework on a Glory side that have played just one game in Perth this season and are in need of points.

"We've pulled up pretty good considering we only played a couple days ago, we're back now preparing for Perth Glory," Hall said ahead of the game.

"They've been playing away from home for the whole season now. We've analysed them and know their attacking threats and we know where we can hurt them."

Crucial points up for grabs

The Mariners themselves are in need of points as they look to make the top six. They are currently eighth on the ladder and have not picked up a win in their last three games.

Glory have lost three from four but their win did come against Sydney FC and they have shown they are capable of digging out results.
