Newcastle Jets Prediction

Newcastle Jets currently occupy 7th place on the A-League ladder and are four points adrift of Wellington Phoenix and the last remaining play-offs spot ahead of Wednesday evening’s clash with Brisbane Roar at their McDonald Jones Stadium.

The hosts have alternated between winning and losing in recent weeks as they’ve captured wins against Western Sydney Wanderers, Brisbane Roar and Central Coast Mariners, but these victories have been offset by defeats to Melbourne City, Perth Glory and Adelaide United.

However, there’s two encouraging points here; firstly, the three defeats were against teams sitting in the top six and secondly, The Jets have already recorded a 2-0 win over Brisbane Roar recently at the beginning of December.

Former Venezuelan international, Vargas (3 goals) leads the way for the home side.

Brisbane Roar Prediction

Brisbane Roar sit a disappointing second from bottom in the A-League in 9th place ahead of their trip to Newcastle as they look to draw level on points with 8th placed Western Sydney Wanderers and in turn, kick-start what has been a dismal start to the new Australian domestic season for the visitors.

However, this may be easier said than done for The Roar who have lost their last five matches on the trot, scoring just 5 goals but conceding a total of 14 goals during this disastrous spell of results for the Queensland outfit.

Losses to Adelaide United, tonight’s opponents Newcastle Jets, Melbourne Victory, Wellington Phoenix and Sydney means the visitors now find themselves 9 points off the pace of a top six place, and with an away record of 0-1-5 6/14, further misery looks set to be dished out to Brisbane Roar here.

Striker Taggart (6 goals) seems to be Brisbane Roar’s only hope in this one.

Betting Tips Verdict

Newcastle Jets will be looking to bounce back here while Brisbane Roar continue to struggle on the road.
