Monday night preview: Western United v Newcastle Jets - April 26
Western United and Newcastle Jets meet for the second time in April as the two teams collide at AAMI Park on Monday night.
United beat Newcastle 1-0 at McDonald Jones Stadium on April 5 thanks to a Lachlan Wales goal netted in the first minute of play. Mark Rudan's side have played three games since, notching one win, one draw and one loss on an indifferent run of form.
The Jets are planted to the foot of the A-League table after Melbourne Victory's win over Western Sydney Wanderers on Friday night. Craig Deans' side went on a five-game unbeaten run early in the 2020/21 season, but are now winless in nine games.
Newcastle stopped a seven-game losing streak with consecutive draws in Matchweeks 16 and 17, earned against Perth Glory and Macarthur FC respectively. A Steven Ugarkovic stunner helped the Jets on their way to sealing a point against the Bulls, but it will take a three-point effort against United to get Newcastle back above Victory into 11th place.
