    Live: Brisbane Roar v Newcastle Jets


    Kristian Silva

    Brisbane host Newcastle in Round 11 of the A-League.

    Sort posts by:

    Thanks for joining Fairfax Media's coverage of tonight's game.

    Time to head down to the post-game press conference to hear the managers' thoughts.

    From me, Kristian Silva, goodnight and have a Merry Christmas.

    FULL TIME: And there it is. Newcastle Jets have pulled off an unlikely win here at Suncorp.

    It's the first time Brisbane have lost at home since round 17 last season.

    94th: A yellow for Franjic who slides in late on Zadkovich.

    90th: It's just one of those nights for Brisbane. 

    Luke Brattan's free kick was tipped around the post by Birighitti, and then the ball is cleared off the line from the corner.

    3 minutes of stoppage time to come.

    86th: GOAL! Brisbane 0, Newcastle 2

    The substitute Joey Gibbs strikes, and this game is all but over! 

    A classic counter-attack. The excellent Brillante with the run down the right and drifted in an aerial cross. The ball just evaded the stretching Matt Smith, and Gibbs poked it home.

    85th: So, five minutes and stoppage time to go.

    Can the Jets hang on for an unlikely victory?

    83rd: Another change for the Jets. Joey Gibbs comes on for Adam Taggart, who has worked hard tonight.

    Meanwhile, Brisbane also with a sub. Diogo Ferreira on for Corey Brown. Ferreira sporting a haircut not dissimilar to Sacha Baren Cohen in the film Bruno.

    81st: And now Henrique with a chance! Broich with an inch-perfect low cross, but the Brazilian found himself with little space and the ball is cleared for a corner by Zadkovich.

    The Jets get the ball out of the box from the corner kick.

    80th: Wave after wave of Brisbane attacks down the wings, but Jets centre backs Jaliens and Taylor Regan are holding firm. 

    78th: Holding Newcastle midfielder Benjamin Kantarovski is replaced by Zenon Caravella.

    73rd: Did the referee just miss a handball in the Brisbane box? The Jets players appeal for the penalty after the ball struck Matt Smith

    Referee Peter Green waves play on, but replays suggest it hit a hand. A let off for Brisbane.

    72nd: Huge tackle by Jets centre-back Kew Jaliens! Broich with another one of those crosses from the left, but the Dutchman managed to get a foot in to keep Berisha at bay.

    72nd: The Roar players look frustrated, almost panicked. They aren't used to trailing at home.

    The Jets have kept things really compact in this second half. It's meant Broich has roamed free on the left, but none of his crosses have been converted.

    70th: Cheers from the home fans, it's time for Henrique (the "slippery fish", as he's known) to be substituted into the game.

    Defender Jack Hingert makes way.

    67th: Newcastle substitution. Andrew Hoole off, Craig Goodwin on.

    The home fans giving Hoole some stick as he slowly trudges off the field. Clearly he's got his eye on the clock.

    65th: There's despair on the face of Mike Mulvey after another chance goes amiss for the home side.

    Broich, who has had so much of the ball on the left tonight, drifted in a cross to the back post and both Besart Berisha and Ivan Franjic can't get there in time.

    60th: And Petratos is now on. Liam Miller makes way.

    The Roar will change their shape to accommodate the extra attacker, you'd think.

    59th: And Broich stings the palms of Birighitti. He hit that from the edge of the area but the Jets stopper was more than up to it.

    He holds onto it after a slight fumble.

    End to end stuff!

    56th: Newcastle now with a couple of chances.

    Brillante hits a first-time strike from distance on the half volley. He hit that sweetly, but straight to Theo who holds on well.

    Seconds later Newcastle had the Roar defence outnumbered 2 to 1, but the flag went up against Taggart.

    54th: Theo forced into a save from Adam Taggart.

    Brillante sent him clear with a delightful through ball, but the striker's low drive goes straight to the keeper. 

    50th: Yeoww! Brisbane go close again!

    Corey Brown beats the offside trap and delivers a low drive across goal. Ivan Franjic is a fraction late as he tried to slide in at the back post.

    48th: Oh dear, a communication breakdown means Newcastle squanders some good work by their in-form striker Adam Taggart

    Taggart broke down the right and crossed for Adam Hoole, who let the ball run instead of controlling it. I think he thought there was a team mate behind him.

    46th: Second half under way.

    Brisbane have had 59% possession but have a first-half deficit to show for it. Will Mike Mulvey shake things up with a change or two in personnel?

    Plenty of options with Henrique and Petratos on the bench.

    HALF TIME: The whistle blows for the half-time break. Newcastle have the lead.

    The youngsters are out playing small sided football and a giant Hyundai sign is sitting in the centre circle surrounded by people who will eventually start shaking it up and down...never really got the point of that.

    Time for me to duck out and grab a sandwich. We'll be back for the second half.

    Brisbane 0, Newcastle 1

    46th: And a silly yellow card for Brisbane skipper Matt Smith. He gave away a foul in the middle of the park and then punched the ball in the air instead of passing it back nicely.

    Referee Peter Green wasn't impressed and Smith's name goes into the notebook.

    45th: Berisha cuts inside and his long-range shot thunders into the defender and bounces clear. Expecting this to be 0-1 at the break, one minute of added time.

    40th: Well, well well...with the Jets 1-0 up, can will they be able to continue their good run at Suncorp?

    They've played well in this half and have had extended passages where they have passed the ball nicely.

    38th: Meanwhile, Berisha goes down heavily again and is lying on the turf banging his leg. A late, reckless, challenge by Ruben Zadkovich on the Albanian...not pretty stuff.

    The Roar's main man is up and about now, but is not happy about the challenge.

    34th: GOAL! Brisbane 0, Newcastle 1

    What a disaster for the Roar, an own goal! Andrew Hoole broke down the left wing, and squared the ball across the six-yard box from the byline.

    James Donachie went sliding in and sent it past a helpless Theo.

    31st: The Suncorp pitch appears to be in poor condition tonight, following concerts by Taylor Swift and Bon Jovi in the last couple of weeks.

    27th: Corner for Newcastle and the ball flashes across goal! Plenty of bodies in box with the ball bouncing all over the place. It's eventually hacked clear.

    22nd: And the referee pulls out a yellow card for Newcastle's Sam Gallaway for bringing down Ivan Franjic. Just hauled him down as the winger was charging down the right flank.

    18th: Another wasted chance for Brisbane!

    Josh Brillante had the ball stolen off him by Matt McKay, and his ball across the six-yard box really should have been tucked away by Ivan Franjic

    Franjic's first touch sent the ball skywards, and he couldn't head home.

    Still 0-0.

    16th: Half chance for Berisha, but it's harmlessly into the keeper's hands now.

    The masterful Thomas Broich sending a cross in from deep on the left, but the Albanian was unable to get any power onto his header while off balance.

    14th: Newcastle playing with two up front with a front pairing of Adam Taggart and Andrew Hoole.

    Good to see that they aren't going into their shell, despite Brisbane's great record at home.

    8th: Golden chance missed for Brisbane!

    Berisha whipped in a cross for Ivan Franjic who managed to cut it back to Liam Miller,  but the midfielder flashed his shot wide from 12 yards.

    First clear chance of the game.

    7th: Another interesting stat. The Jets have won 7 of the 11 games they have played here at Suncorp in the league.

    5th: Besart Berisha went down hard following a heavy collision with Jets keeper Mark Birighitti.

    Thomas Broich whipped in a cross and the striker was a fraction late to get to the ball and was cleaned up. He's back on his feet now.

    Brisbane is wearing what it calls its "event strip" for the first time this season tonight.

    Not exactly sure what the event is, but I reckon it scrubs up nicely.

    Newcastle is in its regular away green gear.

    One for the stats nerds out there...

    If Brisbane wins tonight, it will be their 100th win in the A-League. They are currently sitting on 99 wins from 219 games.

    One of the players who isn’t here tonight is Kwame Yeboah, with the Brisbane youngster poised to sign with German side Borussia Monchengladbach.

    We’ve seen some glimpses of the 19-year-old this season, who has mostly featured off the bench and scored a few sensational goals.

    No doubt the raw talent is there, so it’ll be interesting to see if the German youth system can turn flashes of brilliance into consistant brilliance.

    The talk is Yeboah will feature in Brisbane’s game against Sydney FC on Boxing Day. After that, who knows.

    There was a media launch for the Summer of Football campaign down in Bondi Beach on Wednesday with Alessandro Del PieroShinji Ono and league boss David Gallop spruiking the summer fixtures.

    Great to see ADP enjoying himself and taking in the local sights, eh?

    Kristian Silva: Good evening, and welcome to Suncorp Stadium for this Round 11 clash between Brisbane Roar and Newcastle Jets.

    Kristian Silva in the hotseat covering this game for Fairfax Media.

    We’re into game two of what the A-League is calling its “Summer of Football” - 16 games in 17 days.

    Plenty of Christmas cheer in Brisbane, although it must be said Roar fans have been feeling pretty festive for a while.

    They’re already five points ahead of Western Sydney Wanderers and six clear of Sydney FC, so despite the result tonight, Mike Mulvey’s men will have the Christmas present they’re cherishing.

    Kick off is in about 15 minutes.
