Newcastle Jets vs Central Coast Mariners Prediction
Newcastle Jets is on a nine-game winless streak in their schedules lately. While most of their losses have come on the road, they have had troubles at home too. Their previous encounter with Western United at home ended in a goalless draw.
Craig Deans will be focusing on utilizing the home ground advantage in the match. The Jets have marked one win in their seven home matches so far. However, they have lost only three games within the same period in the campaign.
In their past five home matches, Newcastle Jets have stayed unbeaten in three of those matches with two draws and a win. So, the host is likely to show better composure as ten of their overall 31 conceded goals have come at home.
Central Coast Mariners have struggled in their recent matches.they are on a three-game losing trend in their overall fixtures. The visitors have not been that successful in their h2h clashes with the Jets. Hence, Alen Stajcic and his boys will be at a backhand before the game starts.
Their previous encounter in the schedule was at home. The Mariners faced WS Wanderers and lost 1-3 in the clash. In the meantime, the away side has been through a rough patch on the road in the league season.
Central Coast Mariners has lost six of their seven away games in the campaign until now. They have conceded an average of 2.0 goals in their away fixtures. So, Alen Stajcic will be concerned about his team’s performance away from home.
As such, Newcastle Jets will more probably be at the winning end of the match. The Mariners are likely not to challenge the host in the game but we can expect a fightback from them. Hence, there is a probability for the total score to go over 2.5 goals in ninety minutes.
