Due to a jam packed January, Mike Mulvey has been forced to make multiple changes to his provisional squad of players who are available for selection to take on the Newcastle Jets.
Unfortunately for the Mariners Matt Simon will miss the 46th #F3Derby due to an accumulation of yellow cards, receiving his fifth of the season against Brisbane on Sunday.
Tommy Oar will remain sidelined with a minor leg injury incurred against the Mariners' win over Melbourne City. Joining him, on the injury list is Jake McGing who strained his hamstring in our draw with Brisbane Roar.
The injuries and suspension see: Peter Kekeris, Josh Macdonald, Josh Nisbet & Charles M'Mombwa all added to Mulvey’s provisional squad for Wednesday’s #F3Derby in Newcastle.
