THE PREDICTION

The Jets make the trip to Melbourne knowing this is a golden chance to get three points and put pressure on Wellington in the final play-off place without them playing. Victory will be no pushovers however and have to be favoured at home, but expect plenty of goals at both ends of the pitch.
