Curtis stunner gives Gold Coast win over Newcastle

A left thunderbolt from John Curtis has given Gold Coast United a vital home win over Newcastle Jets in tonight's A-League clash at Skilled Park. 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.
