Newcastle Jets vs Brisbane Roar Predictions

Brisbane Roar defeated Newcastle Jets in the most recent meeting last season. Since then, the Jets are a club going through turmoil on and off the pitch and the Roar can take all three points again.

  • Newcastle Jets have lost all 3 matches this season (A-League).
  • Brisbane Roar are unbeaten in 3 of the last 4 matches against Newcastle Jets (A-League).
  • Brisbane Roar have won 2 of their last 3 away matches (A-League).

Head to Head

In the last 10 clashes between the sides in the A-League, Newcastle Jets lead the head to head 6-2 with two draws. 

Last season, it was a share of the points from a 1-1 draw at McDonald Jones Stadium. Brisbane Roar then won 1-0 at home with Scott McDonald getting the winner.

Newcastle Jets Form

After a difficult off-season off the pitch, Newcastle Jets' troubles have been transferred onto it too.

A 2-1 defeat at home to A-League new boys Macarthur on Sunday made it three straight losses to start the season for interim boss Craig Deans' side. 

Jets trailed 2-0 after 23 minutes at McDonald Jones Stadium to Loic Puyo and Matt Derbyshire goals. Valentino Yuel pulled one back before half-time but it was not to be for the Jets.

Newcastle had already lost the F3 derby 1-0 to rivals Central Coast Mariners and went down 2-1 to Western Sydney Wanderers, coached by former boss Carl Robinson.

Newcastle Jets Team News

Craig Deans is limited on options but may make changes with the quick turnaround following Sunday's game.

Jets forward Roy O'Donovan has a good record against his former side, scoring in his last three matches against Brisbane Roar.

Brisbane Roar Form

Brisbane Roar haven't played since January 2 when they recorded a 3-1 win over Melbourne Victory.

Scott McDonald, Macaulay Gillesphey and Dylan Wenzel-Halls were all on the mark in the win at Marvel Stadium.

Warren Moon's side started the season with a 1-0 loss at the hands of Melbourne City. Connor Metcalfe got the only goal in that clash at Suncorp Stadium.

Brisbane Roar Team News

Forwards Scott McDonald and Dylan Wenzel-Halls caught the eye against Melbourne Victory and their partnership in attack will be key against the Jets.
