Sydney FC coach Vitezslav Lavicka is expecting an extra confident Brett Emerton to return to the starting line up against local rivals the Central Coast Mariners tonight.

The international midifielder returned from Socceroos duty in Thailand on Thursday, having played a major role in the goal for Australia-s 1-0 win.

“We are happy that Emo did a good performance and set up the goal for the Socceroos so his confidence is probably high.

“He is coming back for some medical checking and some recovery only and he-ll be ready to play.”

Tonight-s match is the first between the two local rivals this season and the Czech coach is expecting a hard test.

“They have a good structured team, and well organised and well balanced as well.

"They have strong power on the park and have good skilful and good quality players with the ball so we know a tough game is coming.”
