Ernie Merrick said before the match “Two teams will be determined to take three points” but it was Newcastle Jets who took the game to Western Sydney Wanderers, putting five past an indifferent, outplayed side.
Roy O’Donovan – 7
Scored two penalties. A lot of running and energy, throughout the 90 minutes. Impressive intent to drop deep to pick up the ball and sweep it either left or right.
Dimi Petratos – 8.0
Getting back to help out in defence. Sublime strike on goal, curling into the keepers top right-hand side. 18 minute - a smart back heel to create the Jets' second goal. He was everywhere, controlling the midfield, crossing the ball in. huge amount of pace and intent, very lively.
Ben Kantarovski – 6
On for Vargas. Went about his job, but the Jets had already collected the points.
Jair – 6
Perfect ball to piece the Wanderers defence
Ivan Vujica- 6
Came on but job done for Newcastle Jets.
