Brisbane extend A-League lead

2:59 pm on 19 November 2010

The Brisbane Roar extended their unbeaten run to 11 matches in the A-League thanks to a late equaliser which salvaged a 1-1 draw with Newcastle.

The Jets appeared headed for their second straight win until a defensive lap presented the Roar with a simple tap-in, but it was another another encouraging performance by the Jets, who continued their resurrection under new owner Nathan Tinkler after Saturday's 3-1 win over second-placed Adelaide.

Brisbane lead the competition by five points over Adelade with another four points to the third placed Central Coast Mariners.

The Wellington Phoenix are seventh.
