    It’s time for midweek A-League football as Adelaide United and Newcastle Jets heading to Carrington Park, Bathurst for their regional match with both sides needing a win to keep finals hopes alive. Join us from 8.00pm for minute by minute commentary.

    John Kosmina would have left Bluetongue Stadium feeling more than just a little hard done by on Saturday evening, after his side took a 2-1 lead early on before succumbing to two late goals from the league leaders.

    It was yet another indication of the quality performances that he has been able to produce from this Reds squad, but the loss serves as a reminder of exactly what i required to drag Adelaide into the top six.

    They currently sit in eight position on 19 points but are only four points from sixth-placed Sydney, and they get a great opportunity to pick up another three tonight.

    After Perth and Wellington have managed to pick up wins on the road in the last few rounds, Newcastle Jets must surely take the mantle of the worst travelling sides in the competition, managing a meagre two points away from home all season.

    With a solid hom record early on in the season Newcastle had sat as high as third, but even that has deteriorated over the past six weeks and they now sit second last, having won only once in their past seven.

    Coach Gary van Egmond is faced with the awkward proposition of trying to re-program a squad he has inherited to play his style of football while at the same time trying to maintain winning results.

    With the Jets managing only three wins in the 14 games van Egmond has been in charge, it’s fair to say it hasn’t worked out so far.

    But tonight they meet Adelaide on neutral ground and if they do harbour any hopes of a resurgence this season, they must show something – anything – tonight.

    It might be eighth up against ninth but that’s not to say it will be any less willing than a top of the table clash, with the chance of finals football still up for grabs. Who takes it? Find out here from 8.00pm AEDT as we cover the action with minute by minute commentary.

      FULL TIME: Adelaide United 1-1 Newcastle Jets

      Surprisingly good game here in Bathurst. Looks to be a fairly casual sort of affair early in the first half, but as the tempo increased the chances began to flow. In the second half, Adelaide were rewarded for their enterprise with a goal to Van Dijk and it looked to be enough to win as they pushed toward a second. But a goal to substitute Jobe Wheelhouse turned this one on his head and once it was levelled up, it was nearly all Jets afterwards, and they might feel aggrieved not to get the three points. As Griffo pointed out, a point really helps neither team, and both sides look suitably deflated afterwards.

      Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy what looks to be a tasty extended weekend of A-League action.

      A point helps neither team really…better urgency from the Jets but the ref obviously wants another goal!

        Adelaide with a late corner, Boogaard is up for it and glances toward the back stick, but it is wide! Surely that must be it.

      Adelaide look to have done enough now to stave off the Jets raid.

      Adelaide are hanging on by their bootstraps. Mullen dives in and is also carded. Jets lay siege to the Adelaide goal in the final stages.

      Why has it taken so long?

      BIG chance for the Jets, with a free kick on the very edge of the area!

      Bridges looks like taking it..

      88′ Adelaide United 1-1 Newcastle Jets

      Free kick given to the Reds after Djite stands on the ball, and they take advantage a break through into the Jets’ half.
