Ninkovic's ominous record against the Jets

Reigning Johnny Warren Medallist Milos Ninkovic has made a habit of terrorising opposition sides in the Hyundai A-League.

But did you know he performs at his best against Newcastle, who Sydney FC meet in a top-of-the-table blockbuster on Saturday night?

Check out these Opta stats we’ve crunched from his previous clashes with the Jets.

  • Ninkovic has scored five goals against Newcastle, more than he has against any other team in the Hyundai A-League.
  • Furthermore, those five goals have come from his five on-target shots in those games – in other words, every time he’s been on target with a shot, he’s scored.
  • The Serbian master has scored in each of his last two games against the Jets, both goals coming in the first 20 minutes and both assisted by Golden Boot leader Bobô.
  • Ninkovic has played Newcastle eight times and on only one occasion has he not either scored or provided an assist (5 goals, 3 assists). The game in which he failed to do so was his first game against them in October 2015.
  • Milos Ninkovic averages 59 passes per game against Newcastle, better than his average against any other team. His accuracy against the Jets is 82%, bettered only by his 83% precision against Melbourne City.
