Newcastle Jets condemn Brisbane Roar to third successive A-League loss

ROAR coach John Aloisi admitted his players were battling a losing mentality after Brisbane’s dreadful season continued in being beaten 1-0 by the Newcastle Jets at McDonald Jones Stadium.

An 11th-minute Jason Hoffman goal was all the Jets needed as second-placed Newcastle ­cut the lead of Sydney FC – who play on Sunday against Adelaide United ­- to five points at top of the ladder.

It was not only Brisbane’s third straight loss but the third match in row in which they have failed to score a goal.
