Two teams desperate for a win in the end had to share the spoils as Adelaide drew 1-1 with Newcastle in an action-packed A-League football clash.

Striker Sergio van Dijk put the Reds ahead in the second half with Jobe Wheelhouse squaring things up for the Jets in the first A-League game at Bathurst's Carrington Park as part of the community round fixtures.

The draw lifts Adelaide to seventh on the ladder while the Jets remain in ninth.
