    Its been a fairytale season for Sydney FC… the same can’t really be said for their opponents this afternoon – the Newcastle Jets.

    Earlier in the season, the Jets were looking solid. Heading towards a potential top six finish and looking as though their fortunes were finally turning around. However, lately it has been an absolute nightmare run for the Novocastrians, who haven’t been in the winners circle since Round 18! Their last victory came as they bested Melbourne City 2-1 on January 27.

    Contrastingly, Sydney have not been beaten since Round 20 – when the Sky Blues succumbed to their first derby defeat to the Wanderers in over 1000 days. Since then, they’ve been in devastating form and it seems as though no one can stop them.

    This match takes on a slightly different meaning for each of these sides. The Sky Blues’ minor premiership victory was wrapped up weeks ago, however, a win here would see them break the Brisbane Roar’s record points total for a single season.

    On the other hand a win for the Jets could see them avoid taking the wooden spoon back to Newcastle – providing Adelaide or the Central Coast slip up.

    Historically, the Jets stand little chance of an upset victory here. Sydney have emerged victorious over Newcastle in each of their last seven meetings, while they’re undefeated in the last 12 meetings – keeping 10 clean sheets in that time!

    Their form lines couldn’t be more juxtaposed, while the stats continue to weigh heavily against the Jets, including the fact that they have failed to keep a single clean sheet away from home this season.

    Sydney FC will welcome back choice central midfield duo Josh Brillante and Brandon O’Neill – who both missed last week’s draw with the Wellington Phoenix through suspension, while Sky Blues fans will also be hoping midfield dynamo Milos Ninkovic makes a return from injury.

    Its a seemingly insurmountable task for the Jets at Allianz on Saturday afternoon. Sydney have been far too good for everyone else of late and the exact opposite can be said of their opponents.

      Sydney FC 2-0 Newcastle Jets

      It wasn’t as cruisy as many would have thought, but Sydney FC have gotten the job done against the Jets to clinch the A-League all time point scoring record. The Jets were consigned to the wooden spoon despite some promising signs in a first half where they spurned the best chance of the opening 45.

      Andrew Nabbout stepped up to the penalty spot after Andrew Hoole was felled by Rhyan Grant, but the pressure was too much for the winger as he shanked his penalty high and wide of the top right corner. It was scoreless at the break despite Nabbout’s miss as well as Alex Wilkinson’s crossbar clattering header.

      Following the break, things started slowly but Sydney eventually showed the type of attacking play that sees them go down as the A-League’s most dominant team. Milos Ninkovic drew first blood for the premiers following some nice work by Bobo and Rhyan Grant, it was Filip Holosko who played the final pass which saw the Serbian stab home from close range to give his side the lead.

      The lead was doubled late by captain Alex Brosque, who iced the cake with a stunning close range volleyed finish following a marvellous Brandon O’Neill cross which was flicked on by substitute David Carney.

      The final whistle blew not long after and Sydney and the Cove celebrate a wonderful season. The premiers plate presentation follows as the Sky Blues celebrate before reverting their focus back to football and the finals.

      They’ve got two weeks off now and will face off for a spot in the grand final the next time they take to the park.

      The Sky Blues too strong for the Jets, who will claim the third wooden spoon in their history.

      Sydney FC claim the record of highest points total in an A-League season – and they will shortly be presented with the premiers plate in front of their adoring fans at Allianz Stadium.

      A long throw from Rhyan Grant beats everyone and is claimed by Duncan.

      Well, the people of Newcastle are no stranger to the spoon – across a number of codes of late.

      It could spell trouble for coach Mark Jones, who may not be in his current role much longer judging on results.
