Newcastle Jets v Brisbane Roar Preview and Free Bet Tips

Make a first goalscorer selection with Sportsbet for today's A-League game between Newcastle Jets and Brisbane Roar and get a free bonus bet refund of up to $100 if the result is a draw

Take advantage of Sportsbet’s A-League Money Back Special this afternoon, when Newcastle Jets and Brisbane Roar square off in what looks all set to be a thrilling contest.

Brisbane will be hoping to reclaim top spot in the A-League ladder with a victory over the Jets in this 5pm kick-off – after seeing Western Sydney Wanderers overtake them last night, following their 1-0 triumph over Sydney FC.

However, they won’t have it all their own way – as seventh-placed Newcastle will look to build on their unbeaten run of four games to progress up the league with three points.

A fit-again Emile Heskey is likely to cause Jets manager Gary Van Egmond a selection headache in this Round 6 fixture – as the Englishman looks to take a starting spot away from either Nathan Burns, Andrew Hoole or Adam Taggart.

Meanwhile, an ever-increasing list of absentees for Brisbane sees five players miss out, leaving them with no option but to rely on yet more of the club’s promising youngsters and hope they make the step up.

With both teams full of confidence after winning last time out, there’s every chance of a repeat of last season’s draw in this fixture – as neither team able to score in the February 2013 meeting.

And if both teams share the spoils again today, Sportsbet customers who have placed first goalscorer selections on this game will be entitled to a free bonus bet refund of up to $100.

This A-League Money Back Special can be used on any game played up until December 8, 2013. To see how simple it is to take advantage of this great offer, just click here.

New customers of Sportbet can also receive a free bet bonus of $250, just for signing up for an account with the Australian-based bookmakers.
