Brisbane Roar vs Newcastle Jets Preview
This should be an interesting match if for no other reason than the sides will have had about 48 hours to prepare.
Since new coach Carl Robinson took over the Jets are unbeaten including an impressive 3-0 win in Adelaide on Sunday and should be a big test for the Roar, who have managed to climb all the way up to fourth place.
With the Jets facing a very short turnaround to their next match on Monday and the quick build up for this match, it’s hard to see either side reaching top gear.
A draw is a play that stands out, but Under 2.5 goals looks to be way over the odds considering the Roar’s strong backline and the fact they have not given up more than two goals in a game since January 11.
