The Central Coast Mariners host the reigning A-League Premiers the Newcastle Jets tomorrow night.

In the second 2007/08 Grand Final replay this year, the Mariners are looking to take all three points against the Jets but will be without key defenders Nigel Boogaard and Andrew Clark.

However, Mariners football manager Lawrie McKinna was positive his side could produce a winning performance.

“Last week was a poor performance, we’ve said it and we have to move on, it’s a short turnaround this week and the intensity at training has been fantastic,” he said.

“Everyone is switched on and working very hard, we’re going to be without Andrew Clark and Nigel Boogaard but we’ve got able bodies to come in – it’s going to be a big night at Bluetongue Stadium.”

The Jets welcome new signing Mark Milligan into the squad along with Kaz Patafta and defender Daniel Piorkowski in what promises to be an exciting encounter.
