Result: Newcastle Jets earn narrow win over Melbourne Victory

A-League leaders Melbourne Victory fall to a shock 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle Jets.

A second-half goal from Edson Montano has earned Newcastle Jets a shock 1-0 win away at A-League leaders Melbourne Victory.

Melbourne's Carl Valeri had the first opening of the match but his effort was saved by Ben Kennedy, before Archie Thompson fired over from inside the penalty area after being found by Daniel Georgievski.

The home side continued to dominate, with Fahid Ben Khalfallah forcing another stop out of Kennedy, but Victory should have been ahead when Thompson flicked the ball wide from close range.

Jets had been quiet, but shortly before half time, they came agonisingly close to edging in front through Enver Alivodic though his header somehow missed the far post.

However, 10 minutes into the second half, the visitors went ahead through Montano, who capitalised on indecision from Melbourne inside the box before firing the ball inside Lawrence Thomas's near post.

Back came Melbourne though, and Gui Finkler, who was proving to be a constant threat to the Newcastle defence, set up a chance for Besart Berisha but he failed to hit the target at the near post.

As the game approached a conclusion, Finker drew a fine save out of Kennedy and Kosta Barbarouses fired the ball wide from 12 yards, but Newcastle somehow managed to hang on to record a three valuable points at the bottom of the standings.
