Adelaide United will be looking to get their season back on track when they face the Newcastle Jets at Carrington Park in Bathurst on Wednesday night. They lost their first match since John Kosmina took charge when going down 3-2 to competition leaders Central Coast on Saturday afternoon after being unbeaten in his first four at the helm. Although the Reds would have been disappointed to lose, there is no shame in losing by a solitary goal to the high flying Mariners.
Like Adelaide, the Jets will be looking to bounce back from a narrow defeat in Bathurst. They lost 1-0 at home to Wellington on Friday night to remain second last on the ladder. They are just a point behind the Reds and this is a real must win game if either of these teams are going to have a realistic chance of playing in the finals.
Contests between these sides have been pretty well split, with Adelaide winning eight times, while there have been six wins for Newcastle and the same number of matches have ended in a draw . One of those was in the last meeting, on November 25 when the game ended in a 0-0 draw.
