I’m tipping a draw with under 2.5 goals.

  • Newcastle Jets have drawn 3 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Newcastle Jets have seen under 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 5 matches (A-League). 
  • Newcastle are unbeaten in 6 of their last 8 matches against Central Coast (A-League).

Head to Head


Newcastle have a 17-16 record over the Mariners in the head-to-head with 18 draws in 51 encounters. 

The Mariners escaped with a 1-0 win in their last meeting this season, with striker Alou Kuol scoring the game’s winner in the 43rd minute.

Newcastle Jets Form


While the Jets are winless in 12 matches, they have managed to pick up some points with several valiant draws. 

After a string of positive performances, Newcastle were defeated 2-0 away to Western United. The Jets conceded goals either side of half-time, with defender Nikolai Topor-Stanley scoring an own goal. 

A 3-1 loss to league leaders Melbourne City followed, with the Jets outclassed on the night. Midfielder Steven Ugarkovic managed to score a consolation goal in the 87th minute. 

Newcastle’s fortunes did turn slightly as they held reigning champions Sydney FC to a 1-1 draw. Striker Roy O’Donovan opened the scoring from the penalty spot before the Sky Blues returned serve in the 76th minute.

Newcastle Jets Injuries & Team News


Midfielder Ben Kantarovski is out with a calf injury, while striker Tete Yengi will also miss after injuring his foot. 

Central Coast Mariners Form


Like the Jets, the Mariners have not won for several weeks but have drawn five of their last eight matches. 

Following their 4-0 loss to Brisbane at home, the Mariners responded with a 1-1 draw away to Melbourne Victory. 

Striker Matt Simon opened the scoring in the fourth minute before the Victory hit back midway through the second half. Despite creating 16 attempts on goal, the Mariners were unable to find a late breakthrough. 

They were forced to share the points in their rematch with Brisbane as well. It was a much-improved performance from the Mariners, who dominated possession and recorded 20 attempts to Brisbane’s 11.
