WWL Preview: Newcastle Jets v Melbourne Victory

Newcastle Jets v Melbourne Victory
Time to acquire points is running out for the Melbourne Victory and Newcastle Jets, given that a loss to either team in this battle could see their hopes for a spot in the final four slowly fade away.
Melbourne would be feeling somewhat disheartened after their disappointing 1-0 loss to Perth Glory at home in Week 7, but the Victory-s replacement keeper Brianna Davey can hold her head high after her inspiring performance in goals.
On numerous occasions the courageous young talent produced magnificent saves, helping to keep her team-s hopes of winning alive. Melbourne cannot afford to lose this next match, and a win against the Jets could see them leapfrog the Novocastrians on the ladder and move one step closer to the desired fourth position.
However this feat will prove difficult given that the Jets won-t be generously handing over their place in fifth like a Christmas gift.
Newcastle were unlucky to lose their last match to Canberra at home, going down 1-0, after retaining a high percentage of possession throughout the match. They-ll need to create something extra special against the girls from Melbourne in order to claim these precious three points.
This entertaining showdown will prove to be a great start to the footballing year for all Westfield W-League fans, so get down to Wanderers Oval to show your team their much-needed support!
