Adelaide United made it three A-League wins in a row on Friday, edging out Newcastle Jets 2-1 at Coopers Stadium.
Craig Goodwin’s goal in the 77th minute was enough to settle a tight contest and lift the Reds into third in the table.
Louis D’Arrigo struck after just six minutes to put Adelaide in front before Connor O’Toole smashed in an equaliser from the edge of the box.
It was a stylish way for the Jets to reach 500 goals in the A-League, but O’Toole’s strike proved to be their only effort on target of the game.
Goodwin, who earlier smashed a free-kick off the post, capitalised on a hesitant moment at the back from Steven Ugarkovic before firing past goalkeeper Jack Duncan.
Adelaide are five points behind leaders Central Coast Mariners, with Newcastle 10th, four points off the bottom.
