The A-League returns to the fold with another round of matches this weekend as Newcastle Jets take on Melbourne Victory on Saturday. Both teams have been inconsistent this season and will want to win this game.

Melbourne Victory are in third place in the A-League standings and have been impressive this season. The away side played out a 0-0 stalemate against Brisbane Roar last week and will need to step up in this match.

Newcastle Jets, on the other hand, are in ninth place in the league table at the moment and have not been at their best so far. The Jets thrashed Perth Glory by a 6-1 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend.
