Adelaide United 0 – Newcastle Jets 0
Nigel Boogaard was sent off in the 65th minute for Adelaide United but the home side held on for a 0-0 draw with Newcastle Jets at Hindmarsh. In fact, the Reds nearly won the match when Fabian Barbiero scored in the 88th minute, but the flag was up and the scoreless draw confirmed only after Bruce Djite’s shot was expertly saved by stand-in goalkeeper Matthew Nash. Jeremy Brockie had a fine chance for the visitors in the first half but the Jets could not break through and win their first away game since January 8 (at North Queensland Fury). The draw did break Newcastle’s eight-game losing streak in away games, but they still have not beaten a club currently in the A-League since December 2010. The shared points taken the Jets back ahead of Melbourne Heart for fifth place while Adelaide inch ahead of Melbourne Victory for seventh.
