Newcastle crashed to their 3rd loss this season to Sydney FC going down to the familiar score of 2 nil.
The first half produced no stand out highlights and both teams created little opportunities to speak of.
Newcastle did look the better of the two early in the second half, with some good lead up work, for shots on goal from Zadkovich and Brillante, but thatís all the Jets had.
Sydney FC took control and went ahead after 60 minutes and never looked back. Alessandro Del Piero was instrumental in both goals. The first from a corner to an unmarked Sasa Ognenovski and then he picked up a penalty in the 73rd to seal the 3 points.
For a game that promised so much for the home side, the majority of the 12,449 fans went home disappointed.
