Two teams looking to get back in the finals hunt do battle as the Newcastle Jets and Western United face off. Stay up to date with their A-League clash with live scores on The Roar from 5:05pm (AEST).
It’s well and truly last-chance territory for Newcastle after they crashed to a fifth successive defeat last Saturday. Three of the five defeats have come by just one goal, but they’re all still worth zero points – meaning the Jets have a mountain to climb if they want to play finals.
Western United, meanwhile, head in off the back of an upset 1-0 win over the high-flying Melbourne City, in the process rekindling their finals hopes. Victory here would see them close the gap on sixth-placed Sydney FC to just two points with a game in hand.
Kick-off time: 5:05pm (AEST)
