Newcastle Jets are flying in the A-League when it comes to goalscoring this season with Ernie Merrick’s side averaging over two goals per game, and although they have only won once in their last three outings they will fancy their chances against a particularly porous Brisbane Roar defence. If the Jets’ forwards are on form, then it could see the Roar silenced this weekend.

October 2016 saw the two teams face off at the McDonald Jones Stadium and it was the home side who would cruise to a very easy win over their Brisbane counterparts. It was a day to forget for fans of the Roar as they witnessed their side fall to a 4-0 defeat in what was a very one-sided encounter.
