Magic Park, Broadmeadow

The Newcastle Jets take on Canberra United in Round 5 of the Westfield W-League 2015/2016 season this Saturday at Magic Park, 2pm.

Both sides have begun their campaigns with just one win from three matches, so this will be an entertaining, attacking focused match with each team determined to make it two from four.

The Jets have experienced a mixed start to their campaign, opening their season with one win, one loss, and one draw.

Following a Round 1 bye they played out a Round 2 stalemate against Perth Glory, then defeated Melbourne Victory 1-0 in Round 3.

They featured in their first home game in last weekend’s Round 4 2-1 loss to Western Sydney Wanderers, and will be hoping that Magic Park brings them some better luck this weekend against a struggling Canberra United.

The Green Machine were downed 2-1 by Brisbane Roar in the opening round, then defeated Sydney FC in Round 2.

A Round 3 bye halted their momentum gained from that win and in Round 4 they were beaten 4-2 by a Melbourne City outfit who finished the match with ten players after Lisa De Vanna was sent from the field.

The Jets side and coach Craig Deans were left bitterly disappointed last weekend in their loss to the Wanderers. Despite dominating the first half, they squandered a number of chances and looked vulnerable when defending set pieces which ultimately led to their demise.

The loss saw them slump to fifth, however a win this weekend can see them finish the round as high as second.

The side is fully aware of their ability and potential, and if they start to take their chances the sky is the limit for them this season.

Saturday’s match against the Canberra side who has already leaked seven goals is the perfect opportunity to achieve this, and create a launch point for their finals push.
