A string of chances hit the woodwork as they went down 1-0 to the out-of-form Roar. But the fourth-placed Phoenix get an ideal chance to bounce back when they host struggling Newcastle.
The Jets are dead last with just two wins on the board, have picked up just one point from their last seven games. They crashed 2-0 away to Melbourne City in Week 15 – the third time in six games the Novocastrians have been held to nil in their last six games.
Wellington boast five wins and two draws in their last nine clashes with Newcastle. Last season they banked two home wins (2-1 and 4-1) and a draw on the road (1-1) against the Jets.
The Phoenix boast four wins and a draw against Sydney FC in their past five home games. The Jets have been outscored 12-2 in their last three on the road.
