Our prediction for this A League match:
Newcastle Jets take on Wellington Phoenix at their Jubilee Oval on the last day of the season. Newcastle Jets missed out on a place in the A-League playoffs, meaning that they have nothing to play for in Thursday’s football match. As a result, we predict that boss Carl Robinson is going to mix the squad against Wellington Phoenix. The Nix, on the other hand, aim to secure a top-three finish, and they are likely to go for a win in the last match of the season.
The visitors want this win more than the hosts, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Ufuk Talay’s charges. In their last meeting in the Australian top flight Wellington Phoenix recorded a 2-1 win over Newcastle Jets. Experienced England attacker Gary Hooper will be the man to watch in the away team.
