Match preview: Newcastle Jets v Brisbane Roar

Newcastle Jets do battle with Brisbane Roar on FOX SPORTS 505 in a Thursday night blockbuster.

A win for the Jets could put them as high as second, and they'll head into the match boosted by the return of American midfielder Arin Wright.

Brisbane, on the other hand, have lost a bit of ground after having the bye in Round 4.

Some would argue the bye came at an inopportune time, as the Roar had just recorded a convincing 2-0 victory over defending Champions, Melbourne City. 


Expect the battle to be won in the spine, as both teams’ Westfield Matildas populate the middle of the park.

Note: This fixture has been moved from No.2 Sportsground to McDonald Jones Stadium.
