Western United head into the matchup against the Jets with the opportunity to take the A-League’s top spot before Melbourne City head to Brisbane tomorrow afternoon.
Newcastle Jets will be without Mathew Ridenton and Abdiel Arroyo who are away on international duty for New Zealand and Panama respectively.
Besart Berisha returns to the Western United line-up after being rested in last week’s 2-1 victory over Western Sydney Wanderers, meanwhile Aaron Calver makes his first start for Western United replacing Panagiotis Kone after the Greek star went off injured last week.
The Jets could find themselves bottom of the table by the end of the weekend having yet to pick up a victory this season.
A-League’s new boys will be hoping a returning Berisha can close the three-goal goal difference as they look to close the gap on Melbourne City.
