After arresting a two-game slide with a 3-2 win over Western United – spearheaded by a Jamie Maclaren brace – they drew 2-all with unfancied Brisbane last week.
Meanwhile, the Newcastle Jets are firming for the wooden spoon. They have just two wins in the bank and have managed just one point – from a home draw against Brisbane – in their last six games. The past fortnight has garnered losses to the Victory (4-0) and Sydney (2-1)
Melbourne City subjected the Jets to a 4-0 beatdown in Newcastle last month, with Adrian Luna bagging two early goals. Meanwhile, the Jets have picked up just one point in their last five away games against City. Only one of the teams’ last 16 encounters finished in a draw.
Newcastle have suffered losses by four-goal margins in their last two away games, which does not bode well for a trip to take on a potent City outfit.
