The A-League is back in action with another edition of the F3 Derby this weekend as Central Coast Mariners take on Newcastle Jets on Sunday. The two teams experienced contrasting fortunes last season and have a point to prove in this match.

Newcastle Jets finished in a lowly 11th place in the 2020-21 season and will need to take it up a notch this year. The Jets suffered a 2-1 defeat against Western United in the FFA Cup last weekend and will need to bounce back in this game.

Central Coast Mariners, on the other hand, managed a third-place finish in the A-League last season and have been impressive in recent months. The Mariners edged Blacktown City to a 1-0 victory in the FFA Cup in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
