Newcastle Jets v Central Coast Mariners - Match preview and betting tips 


Jets very nearly took three points from Sydney in Round 14, the league leaders levelling things up with just three minutes to go after Jets had led twice. Normal service and another win for Merrick's men should be on the card when Central Coast come to town. Central Coast had a good result at Melbourne Victory but still have only Brisbane Roar and Wellington Phoenix below them in the A-League Ladder

Newcastle haven't won this game since October 2012
