Gold Coast United 1 (John Curtis 90’)
Newcastle Jets 0
Crowd: 2,091

The 90th minute winner broke a goalscoring drought for the home side, who had suffered a 584 minute home game goal drought, the worst in NSL/A-League history.

The midweek fixture attracted only 2,091 fans, 54 more than the record low turnout for Sunday's 0-0 result against Central Coast Mariners.

Like that match, tonight's clash saw the home side dominate the play without converting that domination onto the scoreboard.
