Roar in thrilling win over Jets

BRISBANE Roar have kept themselves in contention for the Premiers' Plate with a thrilling 2-1 win over the Newcastle Jets in an action-packed Hyundai A-league clash at Hunter Stadium.

This was a match that had everything with both sides having plenty to play for - Roar duelling with the Mariners for the Premiership while the Jets needed a win to cement a top six spot, and both sides accordingly gave it their all.

The Jets had all the chances early before goal-scoring ace Besart Berisha pinched the lead for the visitors in the 14th minute.

Roar were unlucky not to go further ahead with two shots hitting the woodwork.

The Jets then levelled proceedings with a delightful free-kick to Ali Abbas in the 40th minute to make it 1-1 at half-time.
