Commentary

FULL TIME: PERTH GLORY 2 NEWCASTLE JETS 0 - The Glory have managed to re-establish their winning ways, as they have beaten the Jets 2-0. They came into the second half with a goal up their sleeves and their intention was to secure the two points. Kilkenny did that in the 47th minute and the Glory never looked back. The Jets tried everything to rescue the game, but in the end Reddy has recorded yet another clean sheet.
90' + 4' Petratos attempts to get past Lowry, as he floats it into the box, but he puts a little too much onto it, forcing Jair to run onto it. Nothing eventuates from the play.
90' + 2' Although the Jets have been queuing up for goal, they have not been able to find a way to beat Reddy.
90' We have four minutes of stoppage time to play for the match.
88' Castro with a thumping shot on goal, as the ball takes a huge deflection off Topor-Stanley, but the officials did not pick it up.

Yellow Card
Perth Glory
83' YELLOW CARD GLORY - Castro is awarded a yellow card after his reaction to the alleged handball in the box.
83' Vargas kicks it for goal and it looks to have come off the hands of Spiranovic inside the box. The Jets appeal for the penalty. The VAR has a look at it. It has been given the all clear by the VAR. No penalty.
81' Castro rolls it through for Keogh, who runs out of room and ends up running the ball over the line. 
79' The Jets are starting to throw everything at the Glory, but are just not getting their way.
77' Petratos swings it into the box, but nobody is home for the Jets. This must be getting really frustrating for them.
75' The pace of the game has slowed down for a bit. The Jets must take advantage of this.
73' The Jets need to start to take some chances, they have nothing more to lose here and it could reap them a reward.
71' Chianese with a quick shot on goal and he hits the crossbar and it rebounds back into play. So close for Chianese.

54' O'Donovan is one on one with Reddy as he runs towards him and slips it past him, but the offside flag was raised in the air.
53' Ugarkovic sends it into the Jets attacking box, but Keogh is there to make the defensive save for the Glory.

HALF TIME: PERTH GLORY 1 NEWCASTLE JETS 0 - The Glory go into the half time break holding a 1-0 lead over the Jets. Perth dominated most of the first half but a 16th minute goal from Keogh is the difference between the two teams. The Jets may need to change their attacking structure, to find a way for O'Donovan and Sheppard to contribute.
45' + 4' Castro attempts to lift the ball into the box but it is blocked by Jackson, who concedes the corner kick.
45' + 2' Ridenton and Castro collide in the middle, with a shin on shin challenge. It is a painful one, but there should not be any long lasting effects from the challenge.

43' Ridenton with a push on Neville in the middle and the referee quickly blows the whistle.

39' Perth Glory have had 59.1% possession and the Jets have had 40.9%.
37' Juande lifts it over the top towards Ferriera, who runs it into the box. The flag stays down, which means the spotlight is on Moss to make the save and he dives into the ball. Great save by Moss.
36' Ferriera flashes it across the face of goal for Davidson, but he has put a little too much onto it. 
34' Moss with the big kick out from the goal line, as he looks to recharge the Jets, with the ball deep into attack.
32' O'Donovan with a silly fould on Lowry, as he places his hands in his back. Could've been promising for the Jets.
30' The Jets must find a way of changing things around. They are really playing well below their usual selves.
28' Play is back under way after the drinks break.
26' After the stoppage, the ref calls for a drinks break, which will allow the players to refresh themselves.

20' Keogh is outside of the box, as he fires a shot on goal but it takes a deflection of a Mariners defender and Central Coast are able to clear it away.
