A 72-hour turnaround will prove a challenge for the Newcastle Jets this Friday night against the old enemy on the Central Coast.
However, Carl Robinson has placed his faith in the squad that got the job done over Sydney FC on Tuesday night with no outs.
Whether or not the same starting XI takes to the pitch or not is yet to be determined, with Robinson plenty of options from a deep squad to rotate if he sees fit.
Players like Dimi Petratos, Abdiel Arroyo, and Jason Hoffman occupied the bench in the opening parts of Tuesday night’s game and will be pushing hard to snag a spot in the XI in Gosford.
