The Jets are on a losing streak, and are letting in goals in huge numbers. It’s no wonder that they are placed ninth in a table of twelve, and need a surplus of at least seven points to break into the top half of the table.

Meanwhile, Phoenix have been pretty solid lately, and have recorded some good results. However, they have been a total mess on the road for quite some time, and are letting in goals in huge numbers.

As these two lock horns this Friday at the McDonald Jones Stadium, anticipate goals in plenty.
