Western United vs Newcastle Jets prediction and preview 

Western United made it to the top four last season and will be hoping to do so again this season as the A-League season heads down to the wire. United are currently eighth in the A-League standings, just four points off fourth-placed Sydney FC. However, Western United have two games in hand over their top-four rivals and will look to make the most of it as the franchise look to contend for the title in only their second season. Western United settled for a 1-1 draw against Wellington Phoenix last time out, and while the result will not please manager Mark Rudan, he'll be content with a point considering his team were reduced to 10 men. 

Newcastle Jets are at the bottom of the A-League standings meanwhile, having picked up just 13 points in 18 games so far. The Jets have been perennial underachievers in the division and are to see yet another campaign of disappointment with little to suggest that they will finish without the wooden spoon. Newcastle are winless in their last nine games and settled for a 2-2 draw at Macarthur FC last time out. Western United will be fancying their chances against the Jets and will be favourites to win the tie at home. 

Western United vs Newcastle Jets team news 

Western United will be without the services of Brendan Hamill after he was sent off prior to the half-time interval against the Phoenix. Rodan could make a few tactical changes with Hamill's absence, with Tomislav Uskok potentially dropping back into the defence, allowing Besart Berisha back into the starting XI. The Jets meanwhile have several injury doubts ith Nigel Boogaard, John Koutroumbis and Tete Yengi all out of action for at least a few weeks. Jason Hoffman and Ben Kantarovski are back in contention but might not be risked on Monday.
