A-League: Perth Glory vs Newcastle Jets- All you need to know about this match
Both of these teams have endured terrible spells of form this season, but both have managed to overcome them and put together a good run of results to boost their standing in the Hyundai A-League.
Perth Glory lost to title challengers Western Sydney Wanderers last Friday, putting an end to their excellent five match winning streak in the Hyundai A-League. However, a loss to one of the best sides in the league can’t be frowned upon too much, and you only have to look back a couple of weeks to find Perth Glory beating top class opposition. They have beaten Brisbane Roar, Sydney FC, and Melbourne Victory over the past few weeks.
Newcastle Jets have only recently started picking up points again, with three of their last four ending in victory. They have drawn against Brisbane Roar during this run too, along with wins against the lowly Wellington Phoenix and Central Coast Mariners and an impressive win over Melbourne City.
This good run on both teams’ parts has put them both within touching distance of the playoff positions in the A-League. Perth Glory could move into the top six with a win on Monday, whilst Newcastle Jets are currently four points adrift of the 6th placed Sydney FC.
