Goals either side of half time to strikers Valentino Yuel and Roy O’Donovan saw the Jets clinch a 2-1 win in their last meeting in Wollongong. While the Phoenix managed to pull one back through captain Ulises Davila, they were unable to complete the comeback at home.
Newcastle Jets Form
Newcastle have rectified a poor start to the season by going unbeaten in their last five matches.
The Jets picked up a shock 1-0 win at home against Melbourne City with Yuel’s 40th minute strike enough to five Newcastle the win. They backed this up with a 0-0 draw away to the in-form Brisbane, before travelling to Melbourne where they defeated the Victory.
Midfielder Angus Thurgate sunk the Victory in the 72nd minute from distance with the Jets also denied two penalty shouts throughout the game. This places Newcastle within touching distance off the top six after losing their first four matches.

Midfielder Ben Kantarovski is still two weeks away due to still recovering from a calf injury, while defender Jason Hoffman will also miss with a groin problem.

Striker Mirza Muratovic opened the scoring in the ninth minute before midfielder Louis Fenton’s 79th minute goal equalised after the Wanderers went ahead.
