Newcastle Jets must win to keep the faint A-League finals hopes alive when they host Western United at McDonald Jones Stadium on Sunday. 

The Jets are six points adrift of the top six with two games remaining, and need a huge slice of luck and turnaround in goal difference. With five games still to play, Western United's fate is in their own hands despite sitting four points outside of the finals berths. 

Newcastle Jets Form

Newcastle Jets restarted the season with a 2-1 win over Premiers Plate winners Sydney FC. But a 0-0 draw with rivals and wooden spoonists Central Coast Mariners in the F3 derby might well have put paid to any finals hopes for Carl Robinson's side.

Adelaide United's victory over Perth Glory on Thursday leaves the Jets needing to win both remaining games and praying for a unlikely turn of events if they are to finish in the top six.

Western United Form

Western United also won their first game back in action with a 2-1 victory over Melbourne Victory last weekend. Tomislav Uskok and Max Burgess were on the scoresheet for Western United, who have now won their last three games.

Sitting in seventh spot but with three games in hand over sixth-placed Adelaide, Western United's bid to make the finals in their debut season in the A-League is in their own hands.

Newcastle Jets vs Western United Head to Head

The two sides met twice before the season was halted. Newcastle Jets won the inaugural head to head 1-0 in December courtesy of Angus Thurgate's goal in Geelong. In February, the Jets and United played out a 0-0 draw at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Newcastle Jets vs Western United Odds

The Jets are $2.15 favourites to win the game with bet365, who make $3.20 to take all three points. The draw is available at $3.50.
