KEY FACTS:

General

  • While the Jets haven’t beaten City in Melbourne since 2010/11 Season, their last trip to AAMI park produced a win against the Victory.
  • There has never been a scoreless draw between these teams, and only one of the games has had less than 2 goals.
  • Melbourne City have scored 9 goals in the last 2 matches against the Jets (2-5 and 0-4)
  • When leading at half time, the Jets have never lost. However, the Jets haven’t scored a first half goal in the last 4 matches against City.
  • The Jets have won 3 of their last 4 away games.

Players

  • Lachlan Jackson became the 134th player to make an A-League appearance for the Jets.
  • Should he play this week, Mark Birrighitti will equal the number of appearances of Ante Covic.
  • A visa player has scored for the Jets in the last 4 away matches.

Coaches

  • Scott Miller has equalled the best start to a season by any Jets coach. He is equal with Craig Deans and Gary Van Egmond (v2). A win this weekend will equal the start from 2012/13.

Then we go through the current injury list as we preview the upcoming game against Melbourne City this Friday before giving our thoughts on the other games in Rd 4.

Oh and we announce a competition to win a signed Jets away jersey thanks to Inspirations Paint (@InspPaint). But you will have to listen to find out how to enter!!!
