(Daniel McBreen 49', 57')

The Central Coast Mariners have easily defeated the Newcastle Jets 2-0 at Hunter Stadium on Saturday night. Daniel McBreen was once again the hero, scoring a brace for the visitors who returned to top of the table.

This was the 28th F3 derby and interestingly was dead level with nine wins apiece and nine draws - the Jets came into the game with 8 players out (due to injuries, suspensions and national team call ups).

The first goal mouth action saw John Hutchinson set up Bozanic who chipped the goal keeper but the effort was just wide.

Craig Goodwin responds for the home team as a corner is cleared straight to him but his shot is wide.

The Mariners have a great opportunity to take the lead on 28 minutes as a Bernie Ibini-Isei effort is blocked the ball falls to Bozanic who fires over from in front of goal. Oliver Bozanic 5 minutes later has his third chance to score as he is played in, he fires at goal but Nash saves.

The Mariners are dominating as McBreen has the best chance of the first half from a Joshua Rose cross but can only shot straight at Nash.

Daniel McBreen quickly makes up for the miss as the second half begins with a clever finish from a Rose cross.

On 54 minutes Heskey has his first opportunity, he turns his defender but can only fire into the side netting.

McBreen wraps up the win for the visitors with a 66th minute header from a corner as four Jets defenders are left watching.

The remaining minutes see the Jets completely ineffective and its the Mariners winning every one on one, the Jets unable to create a scoring chance much to the frustration of the home fans.
