The A-League returns to the fold this weekend with another round of matches as Perth Glory lock horns with Newcastle Jets at the NIB Stadium on Saturday. Both teams have struggled in recent weeks and are in desperate need of a victory this weekend.

Newcastle Jets are in 11th place in the A-League standings at the moment and have been well below their best this season. The Jets were thrashed by a 4-1 margin by Adelaide United in their previous game and will need to bounce back in this match.

Perth Glory have slipped to tenth place in the league table after a poor run of results and cannot afford another defeat this weekend. The Western Australian outfit held Sydney FC to a 1-1 draw last week and will be confident ahead of this match.


Perth Glory vs Newcastle Jets Head-to-Head

Perth Glory have an excellent record against Newcastle Jets and have won 23 games out of a total of 41 matches played between the two teams. Newcastle Jets have managed only eight victories against Perth Glory and will need to be at their best this weekend.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place in February last year and ended in a 2-1 victory for Newcastle Jets. Perth Glory were well below their best on the day and cannot afford a similar result this weekend.
