Newcastle Jets is set to face Melbourne Heart FC in Morwell tonight (7:30pm kick-off) as the countdown to the Hyundai A-League season dips below 50 days.

The two sides have previously met in Morwell during last year-s Westpac Community Football Festival, with Newcastle prevailing 2-0 on a sodden pitch at the Latrobe City Sports and Entertainment Stadium.

However, the match was anything but a precursor to the side-s encounters during the regular season as the teams split their three results - a win apiece and a draw - to highlight the even nature of the competition.
