Phoenix have lately been one of the most consistent teams in the A-League. They are on a long unbeaten run, and especially so at home. They are scoring goals at an impressive rate, and are going after a top-tier finish.
Meanwhile, the Jets have been totally opposite. They have dropped points in almost every other fixture this season, and particularly on the road, they have been a mess.
