WST vs NJ Dream11: Western United were held by Wellington Phoenix last time out but that extended their solid run of form having lost just one of their last five. That is a far cry from the run that Newcastle Jets are on who are without a win in their last nine outings. After a seven-match losing streak, they have at least managed to draw their last two after holding Macarthur last time out but their wait for a win is set to be extended here with United able to claim at least a point from this clash.
