Newcastle Jets vs. Adelaide United

Magic Park, Broadmeadow

 

The Newcastle Jets take on Adelaide United in Round 10 of the Westfield W-League 2015/2016 season this weekend.

The match between the two sides who are both on nine points takes place at Magic Park, Broadmeadow, on Saturday afternoon at 3pm.

Both sides have begun their campaigns with two wins and three draws, one of which was contested against each other.

The Jets have lost twice whilst United have been defeated three times.

These two sides last met back in Round 6, playing out a 1-1 draw. Lady Reds’ Tiarn Powell struck first on the hour mark after the sides went into the break locked at 0-0, however Newcastle’s Tara Andrews equalized in the eighty-fourth minute ensuring the sides split the points.

Since then the Jets have been in good form. They crushed Brisbane Roar 4-0 away from home, and then following a bye lost 1-0 to the undefeated Melbourne City, forcing the league leaders into their closest encounter of the season

That loss saw them stay in fourth place however a defeat this weekend would see them drop out of the top four, whilst a draw would see them remain just inside the finals positions.

This is a match with high stakes, and both sides are aware of its importance.

With just five rounds remaining in the regular season finishing this weekend in the Top Four would instill both sides with a huge amount of confidence going into the final month.

The Jets will be confident after several great performances in what is shaping up to being their most successful campaign in recent seasons.

Once again they must focus on taking their chances. They have been consistently creating opportunities week in and week out, which at times in 2015/2016 have gone to waste.

With the midfield and defence providing rigid support, if the Jets can put the ball in the back of the net as they did so easily against Brisbane, then they will storm home into the finals.

This weekend will be a huge indication of whether or not they can do this.
