Brisbane Roar’s form over the last six A-League matches has been indifferent to say the least as they have won three and lost three. This weekend they play host to the Newcastle Jets while hoping that they can turn in one of their better performances, especially when they go up against a side that currently sits second in the table. Ernie Merrick’s men have lost just once in their last six matches and will be good value to earn all three points on Saturday.

The last time that the Brisbane Roar beat Newcastle Jets on their own soil was back in April 2016, which came courtesy of a 2-1 win at the Suncorp Stadium. It was a win that they had to earn from a losing position, and that was because Leonardo opened the scoring for the Newcastle Jets five minutes after the restart but goals from Henrqiue Silva and Thomas Broich made sure it was the Roar who earned maximum points.
