Newcastle are at home to Wellington Phoenix this Saturday afternoon with the match do or die for both teams.
Wellington are 3 points adrift from the top 6 and Ernie Merrick will have his team ready for a big game. They have a great record against the Jets but their problem this season is that they have been unpredictable like the Jets.
Their past four matches have seen them score 4 goals against Central Coast, concede 5 against Adelaide and two draws against Perth and Melbourne Heart. So the Phoenix are due for a win. Letís hope itís not this weekend.
Unsure of his starting line up, Ernie Merrick could call upon ex-Jets Jeremy Brockie and Andrew Durante. Players to look out for are Tyler Boyd and Roy Krishna who both scored in the two all draw against the Heart last weekend and Manny Muscat, who has a habit of scoring against the Jets.
Will the Jets end Wellingtonís hopes of reaching the top 6? Let us know your thoughts on this weekends big game.
