With Americans Katie Stengel and Taylor Smith alongside Matilda Emily van Egmond out for the remainder of the season, it could be the younger members of the team to step up with another must-win game on the cards. 

The Jets face City, a team they are yet to beat but also a side who could miss out on making the top four for the first time. 

"They're going to be a tough opponent," Wright said.

"I know they are missing a few people, we're missing a few people so it's going to be up to the youngsters.

"Can they step up to the plate? Can they find their role within the team? Can we come together as a team and continue what we started last game?"

Newcastle's youngsters showed the difference they can make during their sides 3-1 win over Premiership hopefuls Perth Glory last weekend with Tessa Tamplin causing all sorts of problems for the West Australian team.

The Jets will also be hoping the momentum can continue as they push for a second consecutive season of finals football.

"We knew that was a must win game and I think that played into how we were playing," Wright said.

"So now we are kind of building off that momentum and hopefully we can keep it going for the next game.

"We know what the ladder looks like, we know what we need to do but now it's game to game and it's must-win all the way through."
