Newcastle Jets Head Coach Phil Stubbins has today named an initial 17 player squad to take on Western Sydney Wanderers at Hunter Stadium on Saturday night.
All 16 of the players involved in the matchday squad for last round’s narrow 2-1 defeat to Brisbane Roar are again in line to feature, while youngster Nick Cowburn has been promoted to the extended squad.
New recruit Travis Cooper played for the Jets Youth team against Sydney FC Youth on Wednesday, and will no doubt be in better shape should he take to the pitch against Wanderers thanks to his exertions against the junior Sky Blues.
South Korean left back Lee Ki-je has looked sharp in training this week, and though he made his debut for the Club from the bench last round, the former Shimizu S-Pulse man may be in line to start.
Kick-off against Western Sydney Wanderers this Saturday afternoon is 5:00pm.
Tickets can be purchased here.
