BRISBANE ROAR V NEWCASTLE JETS Saturday, Suncorp Stadium

Brisbane will be looking to get back into the winners circle when they host Newcastle on Saturday night.

The Roar had their 10-game unbeaten run snapped by league leaders Sydney FC last week, going down 2-0 to the Sky Blues at Allianz Stadium.

Newcastle’s most fruitful period in the competition was also ended last round as they went down 4-2 to the in-form Melbourne Victory.

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

Brisbane continue to be one of the standout performers when it comes to playing at home.

Easily the best performed team at home last campaign, they are one of two teams yet to lose a match in front of their home fans with Sydney being the other.

What’s more impressive about the Roar when they play at Suncorp Stadium is their plus/minus differential (+6) which is the result of 10 goals scored and only four conceded.

NEVER SAY DIE

Mark Jones has instilled resilience into the Jets this season and that was never more evident than against Melbourne Victory. Down 3-0 and then 4-1, the Jets continued to search for a way back and were rewarded with a consolation goal 14 minutes from time

The loss was their first in three games after they beat Adelaide, Perth and drew with Wellington.

THE HISTORY

When these teams met back in Round 2, it was Newcastle who stunned the Roar 4-0 in the Hunter. It was the Jets’ first win against Brisbane in six outings.

The recent history though is definitely with Brisbane with three wins and two draws resulting from the past six encounters.

HOW IT PANS OUT

John Aloisi has Brisbane playing well and despite losing last week to Sydney FC, they definitely had their chances to pick up some points from the contest.

With this match being at home where they have only lost once the past 20 matches, we are definitely swinging towards them.

Don’t expect Newcastle to lay down though. With strike weapons such as Andrew Nabbout, Andrew Hoole and Morten Nordstrand, they cannot be underestimated but do they have enough to trouble the second-best defence in the competition?

THE TIP: BRISBANE

TOTAL GOALS OVER/UNDER 2.5 OVERS - – in their past six encounters an average of 3.16 goals have been scored
