Newcastle Jets are a team that have offered countless thrills and spills over the course of the season. At their home stadium they are almost unbeatable, while on the road they have really struggled.

Therefore it is difficult to predict which way things will go for them in Bathurst. Officially, they are the away team, but this is certainly more of a home game than it is to their opponents, being that it falls within the same state. The chances are that they will be buoyed by the support of the locals, and really go all out for the victory.

Newcastle will certainly need to put in a big performance, as their opponents on Wednesday have experienced a real resurgence after a horror first-half of the campaign.

Under Rini Coolen, Adelaide United found the going tough this season, but since new coach John Kosmina took over, they have been a much stronger outfit.

In Sergio Van Dijk, they have one of the standout strikers of the Hyundai A-League, as he has proved time and time again with crucial and clinical finishes. He is certainly a player to look out for on Wednesday night.

The Hyundai A-League is heading to western New South Wales, so don't miss this chance to be part of the excitement.
