It was the visitors who had the best chance of the first half, but Mark Birighitti was equal to Scott Neville's close-range effort.

Glen Moss was also being kept busy in the Jets' goal, as he was called upon to deny Stein Huysegems and Jeremy Brockie.

Neither team were able to force a breakthrough in New Zealand, meaning that Melborune Heart in seventh or bottom side Perth Glory could gain ground at the foot of the table when they meet later on.
