Newcastle Jets vs Perth Glory Preview & Prediction

Newcastle will be out to avoid the wooden spoon when they face a Perth side who are out of finals contention on Saturday night in the A-League.

Perth ultimately left their run in the pursuit for a finals spot too late, with a four-match winning streak throughout May not enough to propel them into the top six.

That was due to Glory failing to win any of their last three matches, with the team drawing with Macarthur and Wellington before suffering a 2-1 loss to Brisbane on Wednesday night, which crushed their finals aspirations.

Glory’s poor away record is largely to blame – they haven’t won away from Perth since February 5, going winless in their last eight fixtures on enemy territory.

That stat bodes well for Newcastle is they try and haul themselves off bottom spot. If the Jets can win this clash and Melbourne Victory lose to minor premiers Melbourne City, then they will avoid the dreaded wooden spoon.

The Jets have reason to be confident having prevailed 2-0 over bitter rivals Central Coast on Tuesday night in Gosford.

Newcastle have tried hard all season and you could never fault their effort – perhaps they will be rewarded on the final weekend of the season…

VERDICT:

We are going to back the Jets home here. Yes, Newcastle have struggled all season, but there’s value in tipping them at home against a Perth side who haven’t won any of their last eight away games.

Glory will be flat travelling back down from Brisbane having missed out on the finals and this looms as the perfect chance for the Jets to end the season on a high note in front of their home fans (Jets win best odds at $3.10 with bet365).
