  • The last meeting between the two clubs served as the club’s biggest victory. It was also the last match in which a substitute scored for the Jets – a cracking volley by Michael Bridges.
  • The Jets have won a third round match four times, lost four times and drawn once in 9 seasons of the A-League. The only draw was last season’s match away at the Phoenix in which both teams were scoreless.

  • Beath isn’t one for giving the Jets penalties. The Jets have only ever been awarded 1 by Beath. He has awarded 3 by the opposition.
  • The Jets have previously had a streak of 13 matches without a win under Beath. We have, however, won 2 of our last 3 matches he has officiated.
