Brisbane Roar made the visit to McDonald Jones Stadium to face Newcastle Jets in a bottom of the table encounter.

With each team poised precariously on the foot of the ladder, this would be an extremely important three points for either side.

It was Newcastle who dominated the majority of the game, finally being rewarded for their efforts in the second half where they broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute.

Two more goals came in a flurry for the home side, to see out a comfortable victory in the end. A late fourth goal sealed the three points on the night.

Newcastle were on the front foot for most of the first half, with Dane Ingham finding acres of space in behind Roar wingback Jordan Courtney-Perkins.

On the numerous occasions Ingham found himself free to put a ball into the box, the attempted cross failed to beat the first man.

Brisbane showed how they have conceded the second-fewest number of goals in the league so far, with another resolute display at the back.

Seemingly happy to allow Newcastle possession, Roar were equal to all the chances mustered by the Jets.

Jaushua Sotirio got Newcastle off to a perfect start in the second half, finishing well after receiving the ball from Reno Piscopo. It was Piscopo who can take most of the credit for the goal however, with a wonderful driving run from deep inside his own half.

Newcastle were finally rewarded after having two-thirds of the possession in the first half without much to show from it.

Brisbane had to make a change in mentality after going behind, with sitting deep in a block no longer helpful to taking the three points from this match.

New Roar signing Ayom Majok made an appearance halfway through the second half, but failed to make an impact in his debut.

Having to push up a lot higher to create chances was the downfall for Brisbane, as Trent Buhagiar utilised his burst of pace to get one-on-one with Jordan Holmes.

He made no mistake with the finish and gave Newcastle some breathing room, which has been a rare occurrence so far this season.

Beka Mikeltadze capitalised on the momentum and made it three with an emphatic finish in the 76th minute, smashing it in from outside the box onto the underside of the crossbar.

Archie Goodwin, who hasn’t had too many opportunities this season, made a late appearance as a substitute. He put the jets up four to the good after sneaking through and finishing well.

Newcastle overtake Brisbane on the ladder, with the teams now sitting in 9th and 10th respectively. As it stands, just four points separate the Jets in 9th with Western Sydney Wanderers who are all the way up in 3rd.

Brisbane are just a point behind Newcastle, and with such a close competition this season, any team is still capable of making the top six.
