Newcastle Jets vs Western Sydney Wanderers Prediction
Both sides still have an outside shot at making the playoff spots. However, they have lacked the requisite consistency to keep in touch with the teams in the higher echelons.
They also have almost identical records in recent matches played, suggesting how closely matched they are. Although one side could nick a win here, a low-scoring draw is the most likely outcome.
