Ronny Vargas - 5

Some moments of brilliance freed the feet for Newcastle to drive forward which is something they struggled to do in the first half. 

Dimi Petratos - 6

Terrific one touch play with Ugarkovic stretched the packed Wellington defence and almost sent Newcastle a goal up 15 minutes in. Petratos and Vargas were having to come deep to get the ball making themselves work harder to penetrate Wellington's five-man defence. A blistering counter-attack finished with a thundering consolation goal for Newcastle.

Jair - 4

Ballooned his first clear cut chance at point blank range in the sixth minute after being played through by Jason Hoffman. It was overall a poor debut from the Brazilian who looked lethargic. 


Kaine Sheppard - 4

Making his debut for the Jets he gave away what the VAR deemed was a penalty which led to Krishna doubling Wellington's lead. 

Ivan Vujica - 5

Attempted to provide a but more pace and width for Newcastle on the left flank. 

Mitch Austin - 5

When his pace could be used in open areas Austin used it to good effect although there was no finishing touch.
