Jets coach Phil Stubbins has named an 18-man squad for Newcastle’s first round clash with the Central Coast on Saturday. While there were few surprises, Zenon Caravella is a notable inclusion, having only returned to active duty with the Jets last Friday. David Carney and Jonny Steele are likely to start on the left, while Caravella’s inclusion could see Taylor Regan shuffled back to defence. As expected, Adrian Madaschi, Ben Kantarovski and Billy Celeski have been omitted due to injury. The Jets will hold one final training session tomorrow before travelling to Gosford on Saturday for the derby. (VISION ONLY) Read More »

David Carney expects to start on the left, behind Jonny Steele. “We seem to work well together, played together at New York and have a good understanding so hopefully we can do that on Saturday if selected.” The Jets also haven’t beaten the Central Coast in their last five A-League games.
