Commentary

FULL TIME - The Western Sydney Wanderers keep their top four hopes alive with a 3-0 win over the Newcastle Jets. Robbie Cornthwaite was the hero with two goals.
90' + 3' Nordstrand lays it off to Haliti who shoots wide.
90' + 2' The Jets are looking for a consolation goal with their 11th corner, but the delivery into the box is poor.
90' Three minutes of stoppage time to be played.
88' Haliti tries to lob it over Janjetovic but he hits the roof ot the net.
86' Cowburn gets to the edge of the box and shoots, but it's high and wide. Not a good combination that.
S. Cole
N. Martínez
84' SUBSTITUTION WANDERERS - Nicolás Martínez finishes his shift for the night and Shannon Cole comes on as his replacement.
L. Haliti
J. Hoffman
81' SUBSTITUTION JETS - Jason Hoffman comes off for Labinot Haliti who shakes the hand of Tony Popovic before coming on.
80' Dimas sends the corner in with Cornthwaite looking for the hat-trick. His header takes a deflection and goes out for another corner.
79' Hamill with a powerful shot that is brilliantly saved by Duncan who can hold his head up high.
B. Hamill
J. Clisby
75' SUBSTITUTION WANDERERS -  Jack Clisby comes off to give Brendan Hamill a run.
74' Nabbout shoots on target but it lacks the power required to beat Janjetovic.
72' Cowburn with a good pass to Nordstrand who shoots off target.
Dimas
T. Antonis
70' SUBSTITUTION WANDERERS - Terry Antonis makes way for Dimas Delgado.
69' Newcastle finally offer something in this second half with repeat corners.
N. Cowburn
A. Hoole
68' SUBSTITUTION JETS - Andrew Hoole is not happy about being replaced by Nicholas Cowburn.
66' The Wanderers keep going at the Jets and this time Scott gets room for the shot but his effort is wide.
H. Sawyer
W. Brown
62' SUBSTITUTION JETS - Wayne Brown is replaced by Harrison Sawyer.
62' The Wanderers are running rampant with Sotirio unable to get on the end of it.
61' The ball is crossed into the box where Neville is gifted a free header but he heads is straight to Duncan.
W. Brown
Yellow Card
59' YELLOW CARD - Wayne Brown is shown his eighth yellow card of the season and he won't be playing next week.
59' Martinez tries one from distance but it whizzes past the post.
L. Jackson
Yellow Card
58' YELLOW CARD - Lachlan Jackson is booked for his poor challenge on Kusukami.
55' The away fans are making a lot of noise with their team well and truly securing the points here.
53' The form reversal by the Wanderers this season has been remarkable. They have been scoring goals at will and this could set up a serious tilt for further honours in the business end of the season.
R. Cornthwaite
Goal
50' GOAL WANDERERS - Martinez sends the cross in and that man Robbie Cornthwaite has done it again! He rises above the defence and heads it past Duncan for his second goal. Robbie Cornthwaite is on a hat-trick! Wanderers lead 3-0.
47' It is important here for the Wanderers not to let this one slip. Anything less than three wins from their last three games will ruin any top four ambitions.
46' The second half is underway.
HALF TIME - Two late Wanderers goals have turned this game on its head. The Wanderers lead 2-0 at half-time.
S. Neville
Yellow Card
45' YELLOW CARD - Scott Neville is the latest player in the referee's book.
45' Sotirio loves playing against the Jets. He has scored five goals in his career and three of them have come against the Jets.
N. Boogaard
Yellow Card
42' YELLOW CARD - Nigel Boogaard is booked for a foul by a very frustrated player.
J. Sotirio
Goal
42' GOAL WANDERERS - The free kick is sent to the box where Sotirio has time to pick his spot and go bang. Duncan couldn't get near it and his defence were ineffective. Wanderers lead 2-0.
R. Cornthwaite
Goal
40' GOAL WANDERERS - Martinez sends the cross into the box where Cornthwaite meets it at the far post with the perfect looping header to leave Duncan stranded. Wanderers lead 1-0.
39' Sotirio lands awkwardly in the contest for the ball and he will require a moment or two to regain his composure.
35' It's end to end attacking football at the moment and very entertaining at that.
33' Hoole's corner has a nice height about it but Janjetovic gets there first.
32' Nordstrand is through in the box and he tries to square it for Nabbout with Janjetovic stranded. Neville is there to save the day for the Wanderers as he intercepts it and takes it out for a corner.
32' Hoole sends the corner in but Mullen gets underneath it and heads over.
31' Nordstand has Nabbout to his left but he can only find Neville who is unaware of what's around him and he concedes the corner.
29' The corner is sent towards the near post but it's not a very good one and the Jets defence can clear.
28' The first corner of the match goes to the Wanderers.
27' Sotirio drags the ball back but Kusukami is slow to read the play and could not get to the ball before it's cleared by the Jets defence.
27' Hoole shoots from the set piece but Janjetovic does well to hold onto the ball in difficult circumstances.
24' Brown slides it in to Hoffman who tries to shoot from a near impossible angle, but it's easy work for Janjetovic.
21' Tony Popovic is frantically writing some notes into his book with his team on the back foot at the moment.
18' It has been a slow start from the Wanderers to date.
16' The Wanderers have backed off Hoole and Neville almost concedes an own goal!
15' Newcastle are playing with great purpose and great energy but for many here it's too little too late.
13' Martinez sends the ball into the box where Scott handles the ball and it's a free kick to the Jets.
11' Daniel Mullen gets forward and tries to sneak it inside the far post, but his shot is off target.
10' Nabbout lays it off to Nordstrand before getting it back and shooting from distance. It misses but it is a good signal of intent.
8' The Wanderers have never lost here in Newcastle. Add to that the fact that they are in great form.
7' Jackson concedes possession in defence before winning the ball back again.
5' Nordstand picks out Brown but he heads it well over. A promising start from the Jets.
3' Newcastle have received a lot of negative press after their performance last week. Mind you they're not the only Newcastle team to have a bad team on the field last week.
