Match Details

Melbourne Victory v Newcastle Jets
Date: Sunday 12 November
Kick-off Time: 3pm
Venue: The Home of The Matildas, Bubdoora


Our girls in blue claimed their first points of the Liberty A-League season with a comprehensive 2-0 victory over original rivals Adelaide United last week.

The win in the Original Rivalry saw Victory secure all three points and full of enthusiasm for this Sunday’s match against the Newcastle Jets.

Ella O’Grady, Paige Zois and Lia Privitelli have all been added to Hopkin’s extended squad.

Emily Gielnik and Tori Hansen will both look to get their first starts of the season after coming off the bench in last week’s Original Rivalry.

A stunning goal in injury time from Newcastle captain Cass Davis rescued a point last round for the Jets who now only sit one point behind Jeff Hopkins’ side.

Forward Melina Ayres makes her return to Melbourne for the first time since signing for the Jets
