Western United FC vs Newcastle Jets Prediction
The debutants extended their positive run in the league last week after they secured all three points against WS Wanderers at home. Despite conceding early on, a goal apiece from Durante and Appiah-Kubi were just enough for the hosts to pick up their second consecutive win.
With just one defeat so far, Western United are currently breathing down the neck of table-toppers Melbourne City on second.
Meanwhile, Newcastle Jets are yet to hit the ground running in their respective campaign. The visitors managed no more than a 1-1 draw in their last clash at home with Perth Glory while on the road, they were thrashed by Sydney FC who posted a whopping 4-1 victory.
It is also worth mentioning that the away side have garnered no more than two points from a possible twelve so far, and are deservedly just a point away from hitting rock bottom on the ladder. With home advantage also out of the equation, Newcastle Jets are likely to be given a run for their money in their maiden meeting this weekend.
Furthermore, the hosts have been at the losing end just once so far. Which, to their defense, was against current league leaders Melbourne City, that too by a narrow 2-1 scorecard. As such, count on Western United to be the ones to bag the bragging rights in this one.
Additionally, the hosts have been caught napping at the back in all of their home clashes so far. Taking into account that Newcastle Jets have found the back of the net at least once in each of their outings up till now, expect neither side to walk away with a clean sheet intact at the end of the ninety minutes.
