A-League results 2021, Newcastle Jets vs Western Sydney Wanderers, result, goals, highlights, score, video

NEWCASTLE, AUSTRALIA - JANUARY 08: Tate Russell of the Wanderers celebrates his goal with teammates.

It was a grudge match born from Carl Robinson’s decision to walk out on the Newcastle Jets just eight months into the job and join Western Sydney and the new Wanderers boss, together with a Tate Russell scorcher, helped inflict more pain on his old club with a 2-1 win away from home at McDonald Jones Stadium.

In a week where the Jets’ crisis only worsened by having their former owner stripped of his license and the club placed in the control of a consortium of other clubs, they had more salt poured into the club’s gaping wound by the manager who helped turn Newcastle’s fortunes around in the second half of last season.

Western Sydney’s win came courtesy of goals in either half and was much needed after an opening round defeat and their aggressive off-season recruiting policy.

The likes of Bernie Ibini and James Troisi may have attracted more controversy with their moves but it was another new arrival to the Wanderers in Ziggy Gordon who put them ahead after 7 minutes when he nodded home a Troisi corner.
