There is More Action In January in the A-League. The Games keep on Coming, with Round 14 and 15 offering Plenty of Entertaining Football!

A-League Round 14 My Preview

Round 14 begins two days after Round 12 ends, which makes the fixturing a little confusing! As long as the football being played continues to be of a good quality standard then we can’t complain.

My Choice of a definite winner for this Round: Roar

Both teams are in need of a win; I expect this to be an attacking game and an entertaining contest. I think that the Reds will be slightly too good, but it wouldn’t surprise me if they don’t!
Wanderers Game Changer: Kwame Yeboah
Reds Game Changer: George Blackwood
My Prediction: Reds

Saturday January 19th

Sky Blues v Jets
The Sky Blues were lucky to beat the Reds last week as Andrew Redmayne made an important save towards the end of the game to secure the 3 points for the Sky Blues. The Jets have been performing well, without getting a result, but I expect that to change against the Sky Blues.
