Tonight the Newcastle Jets host Melbourne Victory at Ausgrid Stadium for Round 9 of the Hyundai A-League.

The fifth placed Jets will be looking to convert their good form into three-points when the game kicks off at 7.45pm.

A reminder the new range of Jets Merchandise has arrived in store this week and will be available at the Hunter Sports Superstore as well as at the game tonight.

It should make for a great sight at Ausgrid Stadium when the stands are filled with even more red and blue.
