Central Coast Mariners v Newcastle Jets: match preview
Sparks are set to fly when Central Coast Mariners host Newcastle Jets in the third instalment of the F3 Derby at Central Coast Stadium on Friday night.
The Mariners will be out to secure bragging rights after registering one loss and draw in the previous two meetings between the sides throughout the 2019/20 Hyundai A-League season.
These two sides produced one of the most entertaining clashes of the season when they last met in Round 18; seven goals were scored on a wet and wild afternoon in the Hunter with the Jets edging the back-and-forth contest 4-3 to take all three points.
It's been a bleak campaign to date for the Mariners, who extended their current losing streak to 11-straight games when they fell to a 1-0 defeat to Perth Glory last Saturday night.
The defeat ensured the Mariners equalled the worst losing streak in competition history set by the New Zealand Knights in 2005, and the bottom-placed side will need to take maximum points from their clash with the Jets on Friday evening to ensure they don't make that unwanted record their own.
