Three second half goals from the Newcastle Jets ensured they collect all three points on Sunday afternoon against Brisbane Roar in Kippa-ring.

It was a day Brisbane Roar would like to forget and one Newcastle Jets would love to re-live. While Brisbane slumped to their fourth constitutive loss of the season, the Jets produced four goals and showed the W-League they should to be taken seriously.

Brisbane Roar - Key Points and Players

Brisbane Roar coach Belinda Wilson summed up Sunday afternoon’s game in one word…disappointing.

A lack of fluency on the field troubled them when Newcastle were in control of the game which became more evident as they grew tired in the second half.

Regardless of the four goals, Angela Beard and Alisha Foote defensive effort did not go unnoticed, as they helped Brisbane regroup early in the second half to ensure the forwards had chances in the 18 yard box.

The Brisbane Roar had a number of chances in front of goal, from free-kicks to perfectly placed crosses but the ball did not find the back of the net, despite their best efforts.

There were moments of pure dominance by the Brisbane Roar when they strung passes together and worked off the momentum from players but the indecisiveness in front of goal may have cost them in the end.

Talking point

They were missing five of their starting XI due to international duty and suspension, which meant younger players had to fill in important roles in the squad.

Newcastle Jets - Key Points and Players

The Newcastle Jets just showed the W-League what they are capable of and did it in style. They were able to control the ball throughout all areas of the pitch with ease.

However, there were moments throughout the match, especially at the start of the second half, were this dominance lacked and they invited Brisbane Roar back into the game. Newcastle were able to deal with the pressure without to much drama.

At the other end of the pitch, Caprice Dydasco and Adriana Jones kept the Brisbane defenders on their toes with their surging runs down the side of the pitch and crosses into the box.

They were able to create chances each time they touched the ball, whether it was a long bass up the field or working it slowly up the field in order to keep possession.

The only negative note to otherwise a great perform was an early injury to Dobson and the second half injury to defender Nenadovic, the extent of the injury is not known.

Talking Point

Up until this match Newcastle Jets had just scored three goals, and experts questioned if they could score goals but today proved they could find the back of the net. They could be the dark horses of the competition.

Up Next

Brisbane Roar are searching for a win against their arch rivals Canberra United on Saturday afternoon. While the Newcastle Jets have a week off before they face W-League leaders and the undefeated Melbourne City.
