Listed are the Newcastle Jets and Central Coast Mariners starting XI for Saturday's Round 3 match at Hunter Stadium.

Scott Neville suffered a groin injury in last week's match and didn't recover in time to take his place in the team today.

"Scott will be rested from the game this weekend to provide him with a little extra recovery time," Physiotherapist Robert Dingle said.

"He has responded well to treatment this week but we have decided not to take any risks with Scott at this stage of the season.

"Scott will look to return to training on Monday with a view to being available for the Round 4 clash against Melbourne Victory at Hunter Stadium."
