The Newcastle Jets will be looking to turn their season around when they host the Welling Phoenix at home on Friday night. Although often inconsistent performers, the Phoenix are arguably the surprise packets of this year’s A-League competition. The Wellington based outfit has a canny ability to win games late in matches and secure important draws against higher profile teams and as a result sit in fourth position on the competition ladder.
The Jets managed to secure a 1-1 draw against competition frontrunners the Central Coast Mariners last week, however would be disappointed with the outcome after scoring the first goal and leading until half way through the second stanza.
The two clubs have squared off twice this season with the Phoenix recording convincing wins on both occasions winning 2-0 in week 2 of competition and 5-2 in their week 12 encounter.
