Round 10 preview: Newcastle Jets v Adelaide United

Adelaide United will be aiming to keep their bid for a first-ever Westfield W-League finals appearance on course when they travel to face the Newcastle Jets on Friday.

The Reds are hovering in fourth place, two points ahead of fifth-placed Canberra United who have a game in hand, so another three-point haul is almost essential for Adrian Stenta’s side to tighten their grip on a history-making campaign.

After a strong start to the season, the Southern Australians have suffered a wobble of late – winning only one of their last four matches – and Ash Wilson’s Jets will be looking to exploit any self-doubt among the away side’s ranks.

The Hunter outfit are close to last-chance saloon territory, having only won once in seven games, leaving them nine points off the finals pace. Were the Jets to claim a second win, they would close the gap on the top four to six and give themselves a fighter’s chance.
