Jets expect to beat Melbourne City: Mullen

  • Jets expect to beat Melbourne City: Mullen

Newcastle defender Daniel Mullen believes the Jets' early season success against the A-League's big guns has lifted their own expectations ahead of their clash with Melbourne City this weekend.

Mullen declared his much-improved outfit are "expecting to win" when they head south on Friday thanks to surprise defeats of champions Melbourne Victory and Wellington Phoenix either side of a narrow loss to Sydney FC.

"I think Victory and Sydney - and Wellington - probably set the benchmark for the attacking players and attacking play in the A-League," he said.

"We've faced all three of them and we've only conceded two goals, and we kept a clean sheet last week (against Victory), so we're going to take a lot of confidence from that."
