“Every player wants to play. Sutts was injured so he started the season and I’m sure he would’ve liked to have continued. “But now Sutts will come in, and if Sutts does well then Lucas knows he will have to fight to get his spot back again. ” McGarry will be one of three familiar faces in the Jets lineup with two other Phoenix players, Reno Piscopo and Jaushua Sotirio, also heading to Newcastle in the off-season. Sotirio is regarded as the fastest player in the A-League Men and Talay said the Phoenix would have to be alert to his threats in transition, having torched Perth Glory to set up a late winner in their last match. “Jaushy did some fantastic things for us during his time at Wellington Phoenix, and Jimmy and Reno as well, ” Talay said.

“He won’t be able to play, ” coach Ufuk Talay said. Ashley Feder/Getty ImagesWellington Phoenix fullback Lucas Mauragis has been denied the chance to play against his parent club Newcastle Jets. “Initially when we did the deal they agreed to let Lucas play, then [at the] last minute they changed their minds. “Unfortunately for him he didn’t travel with the group. He’ll get some minutes with the reserve team but won’t be able to play this game. “There’s only 26 rounds in the A-League so there’s no point sending a player on loan if he’s not going to get game time, but unfortunately for Lucas it didn’t work out.
“I think he will be available for the game [against the Jets] in Wellington, but not this game. ”WELLINGTON PHOENIXVersatile Wellington Phoenix defender Tim Payne adjusting to right-back role. Talay said Mauragis was gutted to miss the return home, especially as it had now opened the door for Sutton to reclaim his starting spot after an injury ruled him out of the season opener against Adelaide. Mauragis was unable to play for the Phoenix during the Australia Cup as he was cup-tied from games he played for the Jets at the back end of last season.
