Jets vs Phoenix Preview and Prediction

Wellington will be hoping to recapture their best form when they come up against one of the form teams in the A-League in Newcastle on Thursday night at Jubilee Stadium.

While Phoenix have been impressive all season and secured a spot in the finals a long time ago, theyโ€™ve not been at their best since the restart, winning just one of their five matches.

City has taken a stranglehold on second spot as a result, leaving Wellington with a must-win game here and needing to overturn goal difference – while also hoping for City to lose their last game – in order to reclaim second and book a place in the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, the Jets have looked a different side since Carl Robinson took over coaching duties, losing just one of their last 11 games.

Itโ€™s a shame that Newcastleโ€™s form has come too late, because they would certainly be a dark horse in the upcoming finals series.

Since the restart, the Jets have beaten reigning premiers Sydney FC and the in-form Western United, along with a 0-0 stalemate with the Mariners.

In their last game of the season, I think the Jets can continue their fine form and beat a Wellington side that hasnโ€™t been close to their best since the restart.
