A-LEAGUE

The Cairns Post - - SPORT -

HOME-GROUND ad­van­tage sim­ply does not ex­ist when it comes to clashes be­tween the Bris­bane Roar and New­cas­tle Jets. The away side has won four of the past five clashes but it is not a new trend. New­cas­tle will start Sun­day af­ter­noon’s clash with the Roar as $2 favourites with Ladbrokes. But that could be un­der the odds con­sid­er­ing the Jets have won only four of their 19 home games against Bris­bane at Hunter Sta­dium. It is not the only fix­ture in the ALeague this week­end where the vis­it­ing side has the edge over their ri­vals. The Western Syd­ney Wan­der­ers have not beaten the Cen­tral Coast Mariners at home since 2016 and the away side has won four of the past six games played be­tween the two ri­vals. How­ever, the mar­ket sug­gests that streak will end this week­end. Western Syd­ney have been in­stalled as $1.60 favourites and the Mariners are $5 to record their first vic­tory of the sea­son.
