10-man Newcastle beat Melbourne Heart

6:19 am on 9 December 2010

Ten-man Newcastle moved into the top six of the A-league football competition with a 2-nil away win last night over Melbourne Heart.

The Jets played all but eight minutes of the game without their midfielder Jobe Wheelhouse who appeared to be harshly sent off, and the team responded with their first goal four minutes after the incident.

Newcastle have now gone six matches unbeaten, and they're joint 5th alongside the Wellington Phoenix.
