MERBEIN will benefit from an injection of on-field leadership when they return to Sunraysia senior football action this weekend.

The winless Magpies should regain the services of several key players including coach Jarrod Buckley, assistant Joe Cavallo and highly-rated Broken Hill recruit Michael Westley this Saturday as they look to regroup from a horror start to the season.
