Matchweek 8 preview: Brisbane Roar v Newcastle Jets

Brisbane Roar will look for an instant response to a disappointing loss to Macarthur FC in Matchweek 7 when they host Newcastle Jets at Dolphin Stadium on Sunday night.

Warren Moon's side wasted the chance to go level with Central Coast Mariners on top of the A-League table when the Bulls ended Brisbane's four-game winning streak on Tuesday, February 9.

A rejuvenated Jets now outfit travel to Redcliffe intent on consolidating Brisbane's woes. Craig Deans begins his official tenure as Jets boss this week after leading Newcastle into the 2020/21 A-League season as interim head coach.

The Jets are unbeaten in three (W2, D1), showing impressive grit and determination to bounce back after notching four successive losses to start the campaign. 

An entertaining fixture unfolded when the two sides first met this season in Matchweek 4. Riku Danzaki scored for the Roar  and Valentino Yuel found a leveller before half time, before Dylan Wenzel-Halls scored his second goal of the 2020/21 campaign to secure a 2-1 win for Brisbane on the road.
