Australian Football: Jets at full power

Newcastle Jets boss Arthur Papas has the luxury of having a fully fit squad for once as they prepare to face Perth Glory at HBF Park on Wednesday night.

The Jets are priced at 15/8 to finish in the top six and play finals football and will be looking to boost their chances by picking up all three points in the west.

Key players returning

The Jets were missing five key players through illness when they faced Sydney FC on Friday night, including star striker Beka Mikeltadze, Angus Thurgate and Jason Hoffman.

They still managed to pull off a remarkable 2-0 win with 17-year-old Archie Goodwin proving to be the hero with two goals.

Papas is faced with something of a selection dilemma after that brave win but looks set to bring in his star men back as they look for a third win on the bounce.

"We've got everyone available now," Papas said. "It gives me a few headaches which is positive. They're the kind of headaches you want to have.

"Hopefully we're through that period again which unfortunately came upon us and everyone's healthy and available."

Goodwin to figure

Meanwhile it looks like the heroics of Goodwin are enough to keep his place in the side that takes on Glory.

"I think the chances are good," Papas added "The main thing is that Archie pulls up well. It looks like he has.

"He's worked extremely hard to get into the position of, not only the performance that he had, but his body allowing him to do that and wanting to do that consistently over time."
