Roy O'Donovan's return to goalscoring form, combined with an awarded Vedran Janjetovic own goal and Angus Thurgate's excellent winner sealed the deal for the Jets, but that wasn't the only story at play.

Foremost, Rashid Mahazi's first A-League goal was a stunning moment - his first in 86 appearances - after returning to the league after a spell away from the game for personal reasons and a short term at NPL2 side Moreland Zebras.

It wasn't the most stunning goal of the night however, with Dimitri Petratos scoring directly from a corner. Unfortunately for Dimi, the referee awarded it Janjetovic, as if the keeper hadn't had a tough enough season already.

The win leaves Newcastle Jets five points adrift of the top six, praying that Wellington Phoenix will beat Adelaide United to keep them barely within finals contention.
