Central Coast Mariners vs Newcastle Jets Preview
Central Coast and Newcastle will play their first matches of 2022 in this edition of the F3 Derby as they face off for the second time this season.
It was an unwelcome break for the Mariners who were finding some impressive form, defeating Sydney FC and Western Sydney 2-0 in the league before a 6-0 thumping of APIA Leichhardt in the FFA Cup in their most recent outing on December 21.
It has been a slightly longer delay for Newcastle who last took to the pitch on December 19 in a 2-1 loss to Macarthur.
The big unanswered question surrounding this game is just how ready to go both teams will be after their respective hiatuses.
Without a doubt, the Mariners need something positive from this game as a tune up for next week’s FFA Cup Semi Final against Sydney FC however with the uncertainty of how both teams will be I’ll look to the total goals market instead.
Over 2.5 has hit in every Jets match so far this season and I’ll follow that trend here.
