Newcastle Jets vs Sydney FC Preview & Prediction
Sydney FC will be confident of returning to the winners circle when they square off against the embattled Newcastle Jets on Saturday.
Sydney have only lost two of their last 12 games, but one of those came last week when the reigning premiers went down 3-2 to the Wanderers in the derby.
The Sky Blues went down 2-0 within the first 20 minutes and ultimately left themselves with too much work to do – however, if Bobo could have slotted home a penalty with five minutes remaining, Sydney might have escaped with a draw.
Nevertheless, Sydney have climbed up to third spot on the ladder on the back of a strong last couple of months and are positioning themselves nicely for a premiership defence.
Bobo has scored four goals in his last four games and with Adam Le Fondre set to return from hotel quarantine shortly, Sydney are all of a sudden looking good for back-to-back A-League premierships.
Meanwhile, the Jets will do well to avoid the wooden spoon and come into this clash having lost nine of their last 11 matches.
Newcastle have endured a nightmare season and simply don’t have the roster to haul themselves up the ladder.
One positive for the Jets is that they aren’t having trouble finding the back of the net, with the team scoring in eight of their last 11 games. However, that means nothing if you can’t keep them out at the other end.
The Jets will fight hard and put in the effort, but Sydney’s superior class should see them come away with a comfortable victory on Saturday.
