Kawasaki Frontale coach Takashi Sekizuka is preparing for a fired up Central Coast Mariners team who will be intent on revenge in the Asian Champions League.

The Japanese club easily accounted for the Australians a fortnight ago, winning 5-0, and Sekizuka is certain the Mariners will come out firing.

"Every game is different and I'm sure the Mariners will be prepared with some counter-measures as it hasn't been long since we last played them," he said.

"We should be ready for that, with some counter-measures as well.

"This game will be important for us to get through the group stage. We'd like to win and collect three points to move closer to the qualification for the next round."
