Hyundai A-League friendly matches update

Newcastle Jets soar over Melbourne City, Wellington take Mariners to school and a big win for Perth Glory. Here’s your Hyundai A-League friendly matches update as the new season draws ever closer.

The Jets took on an understrength City in Ballarat on Sunday and scored twice in each half to emerge convincing 4-0 winners over John van ‘t Schip’s troops.

Dane Morten Nordstrand finished with a brace for the manager-less Jets, with Andrew Nabbout and Kristian Brymora scoring the other goals.

It was a fifth straight pre-season win for Newcastle, who will back up this Saturday in Cessnock for a clash with Western Sydney Wanderers.

While it was a heavy defeat for City, it will be a very different starting XI which takes on the Wanderers in their Westfield FFA Cup quarter-final at AAMI Park on Wednesday night.
