WATCH: Brainfart! Newcastle Jets' Hoffman makes it 4-0 with comedy own goal

The defender's body seemed to betray him at the crucial moment as the Jets were soundly humbled in Wellington

Being 3-0 down with half an hour left to go is a bad enough scenario, but imagine being a centre-back in that situation and putting the game to bed with a horror own goal.

Well, imagine no longer as Newcastle Jets' own Jason Hoffman did precisely that as Wellington Phoenix cruised their way to three points at the Regional Stadium.

And as if that wasn't enough, Roly Bonevacia went on to make it 5-0 with two minutes left to play.
