Sydney FC look to bounce back from their controversial derby defeat when they play host to Newcastle Jets on Friday night to launch A-League Round 4 action.

Sydney vs Newcastle kicks off at 7.30pm AEDT at Leichhardt Oval. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction

Match Preview


Sydney will be determined to return to the winners circle when they face the struggling Jets on Friday night to open Round 4 of the A-League.

Despite producing their best performance of the season against the Wanderers on Saturday night in an electric atmosphere at Bankwest Stadium, Sydney suffered their first defeat of the campaign as they went down 1-0.

Sydney were unlucky not to pick up at least a draw, but Steve Corica will be happy with the amount of chances his team created - and if they can improve their efficiency in front of goal, they will once again be a force to be reckoned with in 2019/20.



With victories over Adelaide and Wellington before going down to the Wanderers, the Sky Blues will be confident of picking up all three points at home to the Jets.

Newcastle are still searching for their first win of the season after a bye in the opening round, drawing 1-1 with the Mariners and blowing a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 to Adelaide at home last week.

It was a poor second-half capitulation from the Jets, with Adelaide only a few days removed from their FFA Cup win and barely threatening in the opening stanza.

Early signs suggest more of the same from the Jets as last season - they are creating a lot of chances but don’t have the players to put them away in front of goal.

Newcastle beat Sydney 2-0 in their last clash in the Hunter back in April, but the Sky Blues are undefeated against them in their last nine A-League games at home. If Sydney can play like they did against the Wanderers, they should have too much class for a Jets side still trying to gel.
