North Queensland Fury captain Robbie Fowler admits the club will miss striker Daniel McBreen when he leaves for the Central Coast Mariners.

North Queensland Fury captain Robbie Fowler admits the club will miss striker Daniel McBreen when he leaves for the Central Coast Mariners.

The 32-year old signed a two-year contract with the Mariners earlier this week and will link up with his new team after the current A-League season.

But Fowler is ruing the day his strike partner leaves as he will be sorely missed.

He will be missed but life does go on when players leave," Fowler said. "It's just up to whoever's left here to try and do the job."

Fowler said McBreen’s work ethic and strength were great assets and was certain the duo will work well together in the final ten games of the season.

“He's here for the rest of the season and if you've seen Daniel at training you know what he's like, he'll put in his all right up until the end of the season," he said.

Fury coach Ian Ferguson said he expected the same performances and commitment in McBreen’s last few months at the club as he showed when he joined at the start of the season.

"I did say to him that I would still be looking for the same effort and commitment that he's given us and he's assured me that he will," Ferguson admitted.

"And if he does that I won't keep him out of the team.

"I have said to him if it does drop then he won't be considered and that's how open and frank it was.

"Daniel's pretty honest and I'm pretty honest and we were fine, I trust the boy."
