Western Sydney Wanderers are aiming to snap a three-game winless run when they take on Newcastle Jets in A-League Round 8 action on Saturday night.

Jets vs Wanderers kicks off at 7.30pm AEDT at McDonald Jones Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction

Match Preview


After a tremendous start to the season, the Wanderers have struggled over the last few weeks - can they get back on track against the Jets in the Hunter on Saturday night?

It was a dream beginning to the campaign for Markus Babbel and his team, with the Wanderers winning their first three games, including a big derby victory over rivals Sydney FC.

However, they haven’t won since that game, picking up just one point from their last three games and coming into this fixture on the back of a 3-2 home loss to Melbourne City last week, conceding an injury-time winner.



It’s far from panic stations for the Wanderers, who are currently in fourth spot on the ladder, but another defeat on Saturday would undo a lot of the good work they did at the start of the season.

Meanwhile, the Jets are languishing in ninth position, but arguably head into this encounter in better spirits after a last-start 1-0 upset over Western United.

Having received their second bye of the season last week, the Jets have two games in hand over some of their rivals, and with a full two weeks to prepare for this one, allowing their international players a chance to recover, they will be confident of coming away with a positive result.

Newcastle have a great recent record against the Wanderers, winning four of their last six meetings and drawing the other two. Western Sydney have more quality, but are lacking confidence at the moment. If the crowd can get behind the Jets, the home side are in with a strong chance of victory.
