Melbourne City FC vs Newcastle Jets prediction and preview 

In their final game of the A-League season, Champions Melbourne City will hope to end it on a high having failed to win both their games since they were crowned winners. They will hope to build momentum heading into the Finals series, and a win over the Jets could act as a crucial boost to Patrick Kisnorbo's squad. The Jets, meanwhile, need to take one point or more from their final game of the season to jump Melbourne Victory and avoid the wooden spoon. Craig Deans will oversee his last game as Newcastle boss as he prepares to step down at the end of the season. Jets have only one win from their last five games, and will hope to end their campaign on a high with three points on Thursday. However, Melbourne are favourites and are likely to clinch the win at the Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.
