    Brisbane may have found the kickstart they needed to infiltrate the top six this season after condemning Melbourne Victory to a third straight loss last round, defeating Muscat’s men 2-1 at AAMI Park. Massimo Maccarone and Brett Holman ensured ‘Dad’s Army’ took home all three points.

    Meanwhile goals of the season from Andrew Nabbout and Dimitri Petratos couldn’t stop the VAR controversy that plagued Newcastle’s 2-2 draw last time out against the Western Sydney Wanderers. Oriol Riera converted two penalties given away by Nikolai Topor-Stanley while Newcastle had a goal disallowed.

    It’s a welcome return for left full-back Corey Brown for Brisbane as The Roar look to revert back to more conventional defensive position for Jade North in the centre. Although Luke Severe and Conor O’Toole are close to being fully fit they just missed out on a spot in this matchday squad.

    A midfielder in career best form in Ben Kantarovski could return for Newcastle this weekend to replace Wayne Brown. As well as the midfielder, Ivan Vujica is touted to return to the matchday squad as he improves his fitness. This may see Jason Hoffman moved back up into an attacking role.

    Newcastle are happy hunters against Brisbane with a win percentage of almost 50% in 39 matches between the two sides. Last time in Brisbane the Jets ran out 2-1 winners with Roy O’Donovan and Dimi Petratos both scoring.

    Brisbane have a woeful home record as well, winning only two games out of eleven this season. Meanwhile Newcastle have scored in every single match this season as well as losing only two matches away from home.

      That was another classic roar v jets game , it’s an little known rivalry that keeps delivering

      Gee I think Topor-Stanley got lucky , but I also think jade North and avram could have had an extra yellow .

      That Jamie young is a heck of a keeper and Brisbane do look good enough to make the six, have they left their run to late . I thought Maccarone should have slotted one today .

      Great A league game

      How was that extra time wrestling throw down from Topper not a penalty?

        It was a n t s foul for sure . Might have been on the edge of the box or inside the box ??

        I think roar played well , but jade North should have been double yellowed and avram. So luck even out a bit

        Jamie young was epic , saved the roar all night

      Newcastle claim another three points as they win their 12th match at Suncorp. It took 78 minutes but substitute Joey Champness powered home a left footed strike to seal the win for Newcastle on their 10th anniversary of their Grand Final win in 2008 against the Mariners.

      I don’t know how topper Stanley got away with that foul

      That was a penalty for days. If I was John Aloisi, I’d be taking out a $10,000.00 loan, and going to absolute town in the presser.
