Round Thirteen Preview (Hyundai A-League)
Round thirteen of the A-League should be an entertaining one for the impartial. The first game between the Victory and the Jets should be an attacking one. Hopefully, that sets the tone for the rest of the games in Round thirteen.
Victory v Jets Preview
The Jets are in scintillating form as they are able to convert their chances into goals on a regular basis. If the Jets record is anything to go by, the game should be an enthralling one. It is fifth on the ladder against second in this one, but in my opinion the Jets should control this one due to their goal scoring record.
Victory Game Changer: James Troisi
Jets Game Changer: Jason Hoffman
My Prediction: Jets
Reds v Roar Preview
For the Reds, losing Absalonsen due to injury has given an opportunity to the likes of Kitto, who has been a revelation. This Roar is still depleted due to injury. The Reds need to convert more chances in order to be a title contender.
Reds Game Changer: Ryan Strain
Roar Game Changer: Jack Hingert
My Prediction: Reds
Sky Blues v Glory Preview
The Glory have won their last two games without playing their best football. It’s first on the ladder against sixth in this one. The Sky Blues have been finishing off their chances lately and as a result they are second on the stats for goal scoring. They should win this one, but football is a funny game, you never know.
Sky Blues Game Changer: Adrian Mierjewski
Glory Game Changer: Jeremy Walker
My Prediction: Glory
Mariners v Phoenix Preview
The Mariners come into this match having lost their last three games, while the Phoenix have lost their last two fixtures. It’s a tough game to predict, with neither side being convincing in recent times, hopefully, that means both teams will be chasing the three points on offer.
Mariners Game Changer: Antony Golec
Phoenix Game Changer: Scott Galloway
My Prediction: Phoenix
Wanderers v City Preview
Both these teams have lost their assistant coaches of recent times. The Wanderers have only won one game under Gombau, while City have lost their last two games. This means that both teams are in need of three points, that should mean the football being played will be attacking, with both sides needing goals.
Wanderers Game Changer: Josh Risdon
City Game Changer: Michael Jakobsen
My Prediction: Wanderers
