Melbourne City FC vs Newcastle Jets: A-League game preview

Melbourne City are currently at the top of the A-League standings with 32 points from 17 games. Patrick Kisnorbo's side hold a one-point lead over second-placed Sydney FC, with two more games in hand. However, Melbourne City were held to a 1-1 draw against Macarthur at the weekend and will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they host Newcastle Jets on Thursday. 

Meanwhile, Newcastle Jets are at the foot of the A-League standings, with 13 points from 19 games. Craig Deans' side have managed just three wins this season and are winless in their last 10 games. Newcastle Jets were beaten 2-0 by Western United in their last outing and will need to string together a bunch of positive results if they don't want to finish too far away behind the rest of the pack.

Melbourne City FC vs Newcastle Jets team news, injuries and suspensions

Patrick Kisnorbo might consider resting a number of key players for this fixture but he will also want to avoid any slip-ups. With that in mind, the Melbourne City boss may stick with the same starting lineup from the game at Macarthur. However, Conor Metcalfe and Florin Berenguer are both one yellow card away from a suspension. 

On the other hand, the Jets will be without top goalscorer Roy O'Donovan after he collected his fifth caution of the campaign against Western United. Kosta Petratos could be given an opportunity in his place, while Nigel Boogaard, John Koutroumbis and Jason Hoffman will be considered for recalls.
