Western Sydney Wanderers vs Newcastle Jets: Predictions
Both teams are in similar positions on the table and a win here could help either side make a move into a finals place.
Western Sydney were good against Sydney FC last week but the only thing missing was goals so they will want to score a few goals in this match.
Newcastle have been scoring recently but been leaking a few goals here and there so they need to rectify that if they want a positive result here.
A win for the Wanderers will see them jump above Newcastle and into sixth place, while a Jets win will see them into the top 6.
These sides are coming off draws and we should expect another draw between the Western Sydney Wanderers and the Newcastle Jets in this fixture to finish the round.
