Newcastle Jets and Wellington Phoenix conclude their A-League season at Jubilee Stadium on Thursday. The Jets won't be featuring in the finals, but Phoenix could snatch a semi-final spot courtesy of finishing second.

Newcastle Jets Form


The Jets are five points adrift of the top six heading into this final game of the campaign. The finals are out of reach, but Carl Robinson's side are finishing the season a good run of form.

Newcastle restarted the season with a 2-1 win over Premiers Plate winners Sydney FC before being held to a 0-0 draw by Central Coast Mariners in the F3 derby. They returned to winning ways courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Western United and the Jets have now lost just one of their last 11 games.

Wellington Phoenix Form


Wellington Phoenix still have a shot at second spot - and a place in the last four in the finals. They must beat the Jets and hope Melbourne City lose to Western United in their final game, as well as need a goal difference turnaround. 

But third-placed Phoenix will need to improve their form if they are to avoid the elimination finals. Since the season restarted, it is just one win in five games for Ufuk Talay's side.

Phoenix have lost 3-1 to leaders Sydney FC and 1-0 to Western Sydney Wanderers. They beat Perth Glory 2-1 but have also been held to draws by Adelaide United and Brisbane Roar since the A-League returned.

Newcastle Jets vs Wellington Phoenix Head to Head


Wellington Phoenix are unbeaten in the last four head to heads, winning three and drawing the other. The wins all came at home, including a 2-1 victory in the only meeting this season.
