Melbourne Heart FC have announced an 18-man squad for their Round 24 clash against Central Coast Mariners at AAMI Park on Sunday afternoon.

Head Coach John van't Schip has a full squad to select from again, with no injuries or suspensions for the Red & White.

Aziz Behich is promoted in to the squad, after missing out on the the 16-man squad that faced Wellington Phoenix last Sunday.

Ben Garuccio was preferred at left-back by van't Schip, but he will have a fight on his hands with Behich looking to regain the starting position that was, up until a few weeks ago, safely his.

For the Central Coast, Anthony Caceres returns from injury but other than that it is an unchanged squad picked by head coach Phil Moss.
