Match Preview: Sydney FC v Newcastle Jets


One more point. That’s all that separates Sydney FC from a record breaking fourth Hyundai A-League Premiers Plate.

Should the Sky Blues record a point or more against the Jets on Tuesday night the squad will be presented with the Plate post-match at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.

Facing a Jets squad rediscovering themselves following the appointment of Carl Robinson as Head Coach, the Sky Blues won’t have it easy sealing the plate.

Newcastle are yet to play a match since the resumption of the league, however their style of play had certainly improved since the Welshman’s appointment in February.

However if the previous two results are anything to go by, expect goals from the Sky Blues, with a 4-1 and 2-1 win recorded against the Novocastrians already this season.
