Newcastle Jets Prediction

Newcastle Jets were handed a third A-League defeat on the trot last time out when they went down 1-0 away at Sydney FC which followed earlier losses to the two Melbourne outfits – Victory and City both by 2-1 margins.

The Jets will no doubt be relieved to be heading back to home turf to their McDonald Jones Stadium having had to endure three away matches on the trot which all ended in defeat, and although they’ve now gone five league matches without a win, the hosts will know they won’t get a better chance to end this miserable run of results when they host bottom club Central Coast Mariners.

Indeed, Newcastle Jet’s last league win came in a 2-1 win away at The Mariners back in December just before Christmas, and having won just once in their last seven home matches, Newcastle Jets will be keen to set the record straight here.

The Jets possess a home record of 1-2-3 6/8 and find themselves a massive 10 points adrift of Adelaide United and the top six play-offs pack prior to tonight’s clash. Midfielder Vargas (3 goals) and forward O’Donovan (3 goals) look the most likely for the hosts here.


Key-Facts – Newcastle Jets v Central Coast Mariners

  • Newcastle Jets won the previous encounter 2-1 away at The Mariners
  • Central Coast Mariners have lost their last 6 away matches on the trot
  • Central Coast Mariners have conceded 2 goals+ in 6 of their 7 away matches


Central Coast Mariners Prediction

If Newcastle Jets are experiencing problems then the situation for the Central Coast Mariners is dire as the visitors sit rock bottom of the A-League with just 6 points and one league win to their name so far in this campaign.

That rare victory was a recent and very unexpected 2-1 home win over an off-colour Melbourne City and The Mariners followed up that much needed victory with a point against Brisbane Roar in a 1-1 draw in the last round.

However, it needs to be taken into account that these last two promising results for Central Coast were both achieved at their Central Coast Stadium in Gosford, while their results away from home
continue to reflect the huge problems they’ve had this season.

An away record of 0-1-6 8/20 includes six defeats on the trot on their travels, as well as possessing the worst defensive record away from home in the A-League which hasn’t been helped by failing to keep a clean sheet and conceding 2 goals or more in 6 of their 7 away matches to date.

Betting Tips Verdict

Newcastle Jets have had their problems recently but they should put these and Central Coast to bed in this clash.
