Jets move to fifth on A-League table

11:48 am on 25 February 2012

Tarek Elrich scored his first goal of the season to give Newcastle Jets a 1-0 victory over Adelaide United, effectively putting United out of contention for the A-League football finals.

The Jets, at least temporarily, climb over the Melbourne Heart and Sydney FC into fifth spot on the table.

The fourth-placed Wellington Phoenix will be looking to reverse their recent run of losses tonight when they travel across the ditch to face the seventh-placed Sydney FC.
