Where: Central Coast Stadium
The F3 Derby is always a fiercely contested encounter and you wouldn’t expect anything less for the A-League’s longest running derby.
Central Coast have a renewed optimism about the new campaign after Paul Okon overhauled the roster and made a raft of changes.
Much of the Mariners’ hopes rest on new striker Asdrubal Padron, a former La Liga striker who will shoulder the burden of producing the bulk of the Mariners’ goals.
Jets captain Nigel Boogaard has vowed the Jets will go down swinging this year after promising the side will execute an aggressive style of football this season.
F3 Derbies are traditionally cagey and this one won’t be any different.
The Jets’ positive declaration will appease long suffering Jets fans but the Mariners will be equally keen to get a result.
Central Coast at $2.48
Draw at $3.55
Newcastle at $2.80
Tip: Draw at $3.55
