Australian Football: Mariners ready for fired up Jets

Central Coast Mariners boss Nick Montgomery is expecting fireworks when his side entertain the Newcastle Jets in the F3 derby on Saturday.

The Mariners have already booked their place in the A-League finals and are now priced at 12/1 to go on and win the grand final.

Jets up for the game

Newcastle may have missed out on finals themselves but there is plenty to play for and Montgomery is in no doubt they will be up for the games.

While the Mariners are looking forward to celebrating another finals finish in front of their own supporters, there is still lots to play for with the finals positions to be decided.

"They'll be looking at coming and spoiling the party," Montgomery said. "No doubt they'll be fireworks. People are talking about the last derby as the best game of the season.

"It's obviously nice to know we're in the finals but we're fighting for a possible fourth position so we'll approach the game as usual."

Hall injury wait

Defender Dan Hall is touch and go for the game after limping out of the 2-0 win over Brisbane Roar. Thankfully it is nothing serious but he could still miss the Jets clash.

"Dan, he's desperate to play but we'll have a look, we won't take a risk with anyone that's struggling," Montgomery added. "Fortunately it looks like there's nothing too sinister."

The Mariners will definitely be missing the suspended Jacob Farrell.
