Stats, history and transport info for the away match against Newcastle Jets.
The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanders will look to carry last week-s form into their match against the Newcastle Jets at Hunter Stadium on Saturday 1 February with kick-off at 7:45pm AEDT.
While the Wanderers registered an emphatic win, and a performance to match, against Perth Gory last week, they face a new challenge this time around with the Jets playing host for the first time under new coach Clayton Zane.
The Wanderers have the upper hand historically having never conceded a goal at Hunter Stadium and winning the last three matches between the sides. Head-to-Head Wanderers have three wins, one draw and one loss.
The danger man will be Mark Bridge who has claimed four goals in his last three appearances against the Jets. With four goals, 31 shots and 19 crosses this season Bridge sets up an attacking move for the Red and Black every 11 touches.
The Jets have only scored once in their past three matches against the Red and Black and with the Wanderers defence holding the record for most clean sheets goals will be hard to come by for Newcastle.
Allow extra travel time and plan your trip to this Saturday’s A-League game against the Newcastle Jets at Hunter Stadium.
Planned trackwork means buses will be replacing trains between Central and Wyong on the Central Coast & Newcastle Line as well as between Strathfield and Hornsby via Eastwood on the T1 Northern Line and between Chatswood and Berowra via Gordon on the T1 North Shore Line over the weekend.
Wanderers fans catching public transport to the game are advised to travel to Central and board one of the rail replacement buses to Wyong then change for a train to Broadmeadow, which is a 15 minute walk from Hunter Stadium.
Extra bus services have been added to the schedule to run between Central and Wyong. Trains will be leaving Wyong for Broadmeadow every 30 minutes throughout the day, and there will be an additional train service back to Wyong leaving Broadmeadow at 10:10pm.
Motorists travelling to Hunter Stadium should also allow extra travel time and expect delays on Lambton Road, Griffiths Road and Broadmeadow Road before and after the game. Extra parking for this game will also be available at nearby District Park.
