Round 3: Wellington Phoenix v Western Sydney Wanderers
Newcastle Jets v Melbourne Victory
Saturday, 7:50pm (AEDT)
Ernie Merrick insists Grand Final revenge isn't on his mind but the McDonald Jones Stadium faithful might disagree when Melbourne Victory come to town.
Newcastle Jets are in slightly better shape than their opponents following a handy, hard-earned point in South Australia that opened their account for the new campaign.
Victory, meanwhile, are still searching for the right formula after their second-half fightback against Perth Glory ended in a deflating 3-2 defeat and left them propping up the competition.
Round 3: Newcastle Jets v Melbourne Victory
Perth Glory v Brisbane Roar
Saturday, 10:00pm (AEDT)
Are Tony Popovic's men the real deal?
Backing up their thrilling late win over Victory with another big result against Brisbane would go a long way to establishing Perth as the team to beat.
It won't be easy, though, with Roar themselves still undefeated and itching to turn flashes of promise into something more convincing than two straight draws.

Round 3: Perth Glory v Brisbane Roar
Central Coast Mariners v Adelaide United
Sunday, 5.00pm (AEDT)
Not unlike Rudan at Wellington, Mike Mulvey appears to have infused the Mariners with a hardened edge.
Their spirit was obvious in the battling draw with City that nicely sets a home clash with Adelaide, who fought back bravely to rescue a result against Newcastle last time out and have the FFA Cup Final to contend with on Tuesday.
The chance for either team to move three points ahead of their opponents on the ladder makes for a tantalising conclusion to the weekend's action.
