Preview: Jets v Reds

  • Preview: Jets v Reds

This is it, folks, this is the game that will determine just where Adelaide will finish.

The Reds play the Newcastle Jets at Hunter Stadium on Friday night, with a win to go a long way to securing that coveted second spot for the side that has swept all before them this season.

The Jets themselves need to win to keep their finals hopes alive but must then bank on Sydney FC losing big to Perth Glory on Sunday.

Personally, Iím betting on the Reds to get the job done.

With a finals spot already secure, United have the luxury of playing first this weekend and then letting other results take care of themselves.

Not bad for a side that was tipped to do not very much at all this season.

Josep Gombau, recently voted the coach of the A-League All Stars to take on Italian giants Juventus, has built Adelaide into a formidable attacking unit that backs themselves to score in any situation.

The Reds are missing Tarek Elrich (suspension) and Michael Marrone (broken leg) but have the squad to trouble Newcastle.

Expect Marcelo Carrusco to continue his brilliant form, while Fabio Ferreira and Bruce Djite have the potential to terrorise the Jets defence.

And letís not forget its Eugene Galekovicís 200th game for the club, with the keeper to become the first player to do so.

Itís a fantastic feat and one that should be applauded throughout the A-League.

Aside from anything else, this should be enough to lift the playerís around him.

If Adelaide get off to a flyer as they have done in recent weeks. I doubt Newcastle will be able to catch them.

Bring on the finals!

Can United beat the Jets? Whatís your score prediction?
