Result: Newcastle Jets' Mark Birighitti display denies Adelaide United victory

Newcastle Jets keeper Mark Birighitti produces a fine display to earn his team a point in their goalless draw against Adelaide United.

Adelaide United and Newcastle Jets played out a goalless draw in their A-League clash on Sunday.

The home side were the first to threaten when Isaias raided forward and drilled a strike towards the bottom corner, but Mark Birighitti palmed the ball past the post.

United came close to breaking the deadlock as Michael Marrone lifted a cross into the box for the run of Craig Goodwin, but Nigel Boogaard made a vital interception to save a certain goal.

Adelaide pressed before the break and Goodwin weaved his way past two defenders before drilling an effort at goal, which was not held by Birighitti on the first attempt, but the keeper reacted well to scoop up the ball.

In the second half, Birgihitti continued to defy the home side as he made another fine stop to tip James Jeggo's powerful strike from the edge of the box past the post.

United continued to increase the pressure on the Jets' goal and Jeggo raided into the box to fire at goal, but Birighitti tipped his strike onto the bar and over.

The home side made one late surge for a winner, but Goodwin saw his close-range effort denied by Birighitti after he latched on to Sergio Cirio's cross into the box.

Adelaide remain bottom of the table following the draw, while Newcastle are still in fifth place.
