The Serbian equalised in the 16th minute, displaying fine skill before lobbing over Jets keeper Glen Moss.

The goal was one of the best of the season, prompting Fox Sports commentator Brenton Speed to label it "one of the great A-League goals".

Ninkovic told Fox Sports post-game: "It was a very nice goal, maybe the best I've ever scored.

"I'm happy I scored, especially after I was injured for nearly one month."
