Central Coast Mariners new signing Chris Harold is among three faces added to the squad by Alen Stajcic for Sunday’s must win #F3Derby clash with the Newcastle Jets.
Harold arrived on the Coast earlier this week and has spent time with his new teammates, and could be thrown into the Derby fire against a team who he scored his first ever Perth goal against.
On that occasion it was an 85th minute winner nine minutes after entering the fray that secured a 3-2 victory and Harold said during the week it would be ‘nice’ if he could have a similar impact this weekend.
Sam SIlvera has also been added to the squad, returning after a one-week absence against Wanderers with Ruon Tongyik added to boost defensive stocks for Stajcic.
The Mariners were dealt a blow though with Jordan Murray being ruled out after copping a number of heavy challenges in the loss to Western Sydney, and he joins Dylan Fox on the sidelines at least for this weekend.
