TEAM NEWS

Lachlan Jackson remains Newcastle’s long-term absentee, while Dimi Petratos and Joe Ledley were both used as substitutes for the second straight game in the 0-0 draw with Central Coast and could push to start.

 

United have a few absent long-term but the team is otherwise healthy with no new concerns from the 2-1 win over Melbourne Victory on Saturday.

MATCH PREVIEW

MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN

The eighth-placed Jets had found some form before Friday’s disappointing stalemate with lowly Central Coast. Prior to that, Carl Robinson’s side had won four of their previous five matches to shoot into finals contention. They did beat premiers Sydney last week.

 

Seventh-placed Western Utd are two points above the Jets, but with three more games in hand, meaning they’re in a far stronger position to clinch a finals berth. Western Utd endured the two-week quarantine after leaving Victoria, resuming with a 2-1 win over a depleted Melbourne Victory. The Green and Blacks have been solid on the road this campaign, winning five from 10 trips, including one match played in neutral ground.

 

In saying that, Newcastle are unbeaten in their past five matches at McDonald Jones Stadium and I’ll back them, with their finals spot on the line.

 

HEAD-TO-HEAD

These two clubs have only met twice, with Western Utd yet to score a goal against the Jets. Newcastle triumphed 1-0 away from home the first time they met, before a goalless draw in February.
