Newcastle Jets and Perth Glory look to bounce back from last-start defeats when they square off in A-League Round 5 action on Saturday.

Jets vs Glory kicks off at 5.00pm AEDT at McDonald Jones Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction

Match Preview


Newcastle are still searching for their first win of the season as they come into this showdown in 10th spot with just one point from the first four rounds.

After a bye in the opening round, the Jets drew 1-1 with the Mariners in Gosford before slumping to back-to-back defeats against Adelaide and Sydney.

There’s no shame in losing to those two sides, but it was the manner of both defeats that will concern Jets boss Ernie Merrick. Newcastle were leading Adelaide at half-time just three days after the Reds won the FFA Cup in another state but fell 2-1, while they leaked four goals last week against Sydney in Leichhardt.



Like last season, the Jets are creating plenty of chances but are failing to convert them into goals - can they be more efficient on Saturday?

Perth have been up and down to the start the season, but they lost their first match of the campaign last week, suffering a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Central Coast.

After a superb season last year where they won the minor premiership and advanced to the Grand Final, the challenge for Glory is backing it up.

With a deadly front trio of Bruno Fornaroli, Diego Castro and Chris Iconomidis, it’s only a matter of time before the goals start flowing - and with Fornaroli having the most shots out of anyone in the competition so far, he’s a solid bet to bag a goal against Newcastle.

The Jets haven’t beaten Perth at home since 2011, losing seven of their 11 fixtures, and with the way they’ve started the season, it’s hard to see them coming away with the three points on Saturday.

Perth Glory - $2.30
Newcastle Jets - $3.10
