Jets host City on Saturday

The high-flying Newcastle Jets aim to secure a back-to-back Melbourne double when the face City on Saturday night at McDonald Jones Stadium in the pick of the A-League Round 9 fixtures.

Newcastle have been outstanding this season, registering five wins and two draws and just one loss to reigning premiers Sydney to surge into second spot on the ladder with a big +11 goal difference. Coming off a 4-1 triumph over Melbourne Victory last week, the Jets look to increase their lead over third-placed City when the two sides clash on Saturday night. City are attempting to bounce back from consecutive 3-1 defeats to Brisbane and Perth.

Round 9 kicks off at Coopers Stadium as Adelaide United and Sydney FC collide in a rematch of the FFA Cup final. Sydney prevailed in extra-time in what was a fiery encounter, with both sides coming into the rematch off last-start victories as the Sky Blues beat Brisbane 3-1 and the Reds conquered Western Sydney 2-0.

Those two teams will square off in the first game on Saturday at ANZ Stadium as the Wanderers and Roar aim to return to the winners circle. Both sides have only posted one win for the season, making this a crucial contest for each.

Two sides anchored near the bottom of the ladder do battle in the first game on Sunday at Westpac Stadium as Wellington Phoenix host Melbourne Victory. Phoenix are in last spot following their loss to the Mariners, while Victory remain eighth with one win after suffering a heavy defeat to the Jets.

Central Coast Mariners and Perth Glory then look to maintain their spots in the top six as they conclude A-League Round 9 action on Sunday in Gosford. Central Coast scored a big 4-1 win over Wellington across the ditch last weekend, while Perth also registered a surprise 3-1 win over City.
