Carl Robinson has named his first squad as Newcastle Jets Head Coach

Carl Robinson has named his first squad as Newcastle Jets Head Coach, ahead of this weekend’s trip to Western Sydney.

The boss will have his side bolstered by the return of Glen Moss, who is in good shape having battled to overcome a calf injury he sustained in the loss to Sydney FC in early January.

Moss battle it out for Lewis Italiano for a spot between the sticks, with the Kiwi training strongly throughout the week but he's no guarantee to start on Saturday.

Another question is just who will take up the spot in the midfield left vacant by the injury to Ben Kantarovski?

Angus Thurgate came on in the early stages of last weekend’s win over the Central Coast Mariners and played well, passing with a success rate of more than 90% and touching the ball more than 75 times.

He’ll battle for a spot in that midfield with the likes of Matt Ridenton and Pat Langlois, who have both trained strongly this week and will be keen to put their mark on proceedings in front of the new boss.

Not named in the squad this weekend is Wes Hoolahan, who is still pushing hard to get himself back to 100% fitness before he returns to the competitive arena.
