Central Coast Stadium is the venue for another F3 derby this Saturday night.
The Mariners won their Champions league fixture at home on Tuesday night but in recent times they haven’t had much to sing about.
They enter the derby having not lost to Newcastle in their previous 9 encounters, a record Clayton Zane’s men would love to abolish.
Central Coast occupies 6th spot on the ladder, just 1 point above Newcastle. But when it comes to a derby these two teams could be worlds apart and positions on the ladder mean nothing when these two teams meet.
There’s probably never been a better time for the Jets to take on the Mariners then this weekend. The Mariners have managed 2 wins and 5 loses from their past 7 fixtures. Although Newcastle’s form has not been much chop, either they have put back-to-back wins together. A win for either side could mean the end of their opponent’s season. Something I’m sure they are both aware of.
Have the Mariners got the goods to keep their spot in the top 6 or will the Jets take the points?
