Jets face Phoenix on Saturday

Newcastle Jets continue their unlikely pursuit of competition leaders Sydney FC in A-League Round 23 action this upcoming weekend.

After conquering the reigning premiers in one of the most thrilling A-League games in recent years, Newcastle can (at least temporarily), move to within five points of Sydney FC if they can defeat bottom-placed Wellington Phoenix across the ditch on Saturday. Wellington are coming off a 4-1 thumping at the hands of the Wanderers this past weekend.

However, Sydney can restore parity if they can beat Brisbane Roar later on Saturday night at Allianz Stadium - however they are on a two-match losing run after also falling to Kashima Antlers in the Asian Champions League mid-week.

Round 23 kicks off on Friday night at Coopers Stadium when Adelaide United host Melbourne City. It’s a crucial clash for both sides, with Adelaide clinging on to sixth spot after losing their last two games, while City will be hoping to bounce back after a derby defeat to Victory in their last outing.

Speaking of Victory, Kevin Muscat’s team can overtake City if they fall to Adelaide and beat Central Coast Mariners in the final game of Round 23 on Sunday at AAMI Park. Victory are slowly generating some momentum at the right stage of the season and are heavy favourites against the struggling Mariners.
