Secure your ticket today and see what is in store for you as the Jets aim to gun down Melbourne Heart and maintain their top six position.
Still need convincing? Well, how about the fact that Newcastle Jets have experienced quite the resurgence over the past few weeks.
After their disappointing loss at home to Wellington, the NSW side have played three away matches and taken a hugely impressive seven points. Not bad considering the troubles they have had on the road this season.
After drawing the regional game with Adelaide, the Jets went to Brisbane and returned with an incredible 1-0 triumph. As if that wasn't good enough, they topped it off with a fantastic derby display at Sydney Football Stadium last Sunday afternoon.
Whether they make it three wins in a row remains to be seen but, if the matches between these sides so far this campaign have proved anything, it is that there will be goalmouth action aplenty.
If there are half the thrills that were offered when the teams turned out at Ausgrid Stadium in Week One, then we are in for a real treat. In the season's curtain-raiser, Newcastle won a five-goal belter thanks to a last-gasp effort from defender Byun Sung-Hwan. It sent the Squadron absolutely wild and was an indicator of just how strong the Jets would be at home throughout the campaign.
Since then, Heart have proved themselves to a be fine outfit and they gave Newcastle a real drubbing when they most recently took them on in Melbourne. The Red and White's first win of the Hyundai A-League 2011/12 season came about through second-half goals from Fred, Mate Dugandzic (who has scored three times against the Jets this season) and Aziz Behich's late cracker.
This will be Melbourne Heart's first away game since the announcement that John van ‘t Schip's tenure at the club is coming to an end.
The Head Coach will return to Europe following the completion of his contract at the end of the current Hyundai A-League season, yet his legacy will remain. With his guidance, the Melbourne side have grown quickly from newbies into a real force. The work-rate the players displayed in last week's tough draw against their local rivals showed that they would love nothing more than to send him off with some silverware under his arm, and will once again be giving their absolute all to achieve just that.
A win in New South Wales on Saturday would go some way to cementing a top-six spot.
With both of these strong competitors having beaten each other once in the Hyundai A-League 2011/12 season, who will prevail in this deciding fixture?
Each side needs the points to keep themselves in the hunt for a finals finish, so this match-up is sure to be the most full-blooded and competitive of all of the clashes between the two teams this season - which is a hugely mouth-watering prospect! So get down to Ausgrid Stadium and get ready for non-stop drama and entertainment!
