Macarthur FC vs Newcastle Jets Preview & Prediction
Macarthur will be aiming to re-establish their position in the top six when they entertain second-last Newcastle Jets on Sunday night in Campbelltown.
Overall, it’s been a pass for Macarthur so far in their debut season in the A-League – they are sitting in fifth spot after 17 games and have put themselves in a strong position to feature in the finals.
However, they are coming into this encounter on the back of two straight defeats having won three consecutive games against Western United, Wellington Phoenix and Perth Glory.
Macarthur lost 2-1 at home to a Brisbane side who were winless in eight matches a fortnight ago before suffering a heavy 3-1 defeat to Adelaide United in their last outing.
Matt Derbyshire has been the star man for Macarthur, scoring 11 goals so far this season and he will be confident of getting on the scoresheet once more against a struggling Newcastle side.
The Jets have been putting in the effort all season, but the fact is that they simply don’t have the squad or class to compete with the best sides in the A-League.
Newcastle have lost seven of their last eight matches, but did pick up a point in their last outing mid-week against Perth – although their goal in the 1-1 draw did come via the penalty spot.
The Jets aren’t having problems scoring – they’ve found the back of the net in six of their last seven games – but keeping goals out at the other end is a concern.
Macarthur may have suffered back-to-back defeats, but this is the perfect chance to take all three points. I’m backing the home side with both teams to score.
