Our prediction for this A League match:
Brisbane Roar will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Western Sydney Wanderers and Central Coast Mariners when they host Newcastle Jets at their Cbus Super Stadium. Brisbane Roar have been impressive in front of home fans of late, but you should bear in mind that Friday’s football match will be played behind closed doors. The good news for the hosts, who are on the verge of booking their place in the play-offs, is that Jordan Courtney-Perkins returns from injury.
Newcastle Jets, on the other hand, sit in the bottom half of the table ahead of the trip to Brisbane, but their current form is pretty good. Carl Robinson’s troops are undefeated in the previous six league fixtures, and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score bet should be considered. The likes of Ben Kantarovski (quadriceps), Lachlan Jackson (knee), and Noah James (hand) remained in the recovery room for the visiting team.
