Central Coast Seafarers Handicap (0)

Newcastle United Jets

In the last round, the team defeated MacArthur 2:1, but before that they were unable to win for 6 matches (2 draws and 4 defeats). In the table, the club takes 7th place, the loss to the 6th round (the last one entitling to play in the play-offs) is 3 points, and the Jets still have a game to play. The average score in games involving Newcastle is 2.9. The team scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 home games. The team’s top scorer is the Georgian striker Mikeltadze, who played for Rubin and Rotor, has scored 6 goals.

Central Coast Sailors

The team goes into this game with a 3 point game streak (2 wins and 1 draw). In the table, the club takes 4th place and is behind the 2nd line (giving the right to start play-offs from the 2nd stage) by 3 points, while the Mariners have the game in hand. The average total in matches with this team is 3.4 – it is the 3rd indicator of the league, and in terms of goals scored it is ranked 2nd in the championship. The team’s top scorer, Cummings, scored 16 goals, making it second in the tournament.


The visitors are my favourites: they are better in the season and they are in better shape than the hosts. It is also significant that main goalkeeper Duncan will not play for Newcastle. Central Coast Mariners have won 4 of their last 5 head-to-head matches. And on the road, the Mariners have won their last 3 games.
