Newcastle Jets move into third place on A-League ladder

Newcastle Jets moved into third place on the A-League ladder with a 3-2 win over North Queensland Fury at Energy Australia Stadium this afternoon.

An own-goal by Chris Tadcrosse in the 24th minute gave Newcastle the lead.

Song Jin-Hyung made it 2-0 for the home side in the 38th minute.

Two goals by Fury’s Dyron Daal - in the 44th and 61st minutes - made it 2-2.

Sasho Petroski then had what looked like a legitimate goal for Newcastle ruled out for off-side, but Petroski, who was making his 100th A-League appearance, netted the winner in the 83rd minute, although it looked as if he may have handled the ball in the process.

The goal stood, however, enabling the Jets to record their fourth consecutive A-League win and become the only club to do so this season.

North Queensland Fury are in last place.
