Commentary

FULL TIME - Brisbane Roar earn a hard earned morale boosting point on the road thanks to a late equaliser from Eric Bautheac which sees the final scoreline of 2-2. For the Jets it's more points lost due to a late conceded goal. The visitors would be the happier team with the result coming from behind twice to claim a share of the spoils. 
90' + 5' The Jets have one last chance but they can't get the shot in and the Roar clear. 
90' + 4' Roar have the free kick and it's taken quickly with D'Agostino heading it out for a goal kick.
90' + 2' The corner is sent into the box where McKay shoots into a wall of players before the ball is cleared out of danger. 
90' + 2' Lopez to Taggart who shoots but Italiano makes a fine save. Corner to Brisbane. 
90' There will be five minutes of stoppage time to be played.

The Brisbane Roar have lost five matches in a row and their season is slipping away from them. They have had a change of coach and this time they need to arrest the slide to register only their second win of the season.
The Jets are sailing away from the top six and a close range loss at home to Adelaide United has not made it any better. The Jets need to find a way to chalk up their fourth win of the season and make up some of the distance between them and the top six.
Welcome to McDonald Jones Stadium for the match between Newcastle Jets and Brisbane Roar.
