Both keepers were the stars as Newcastle edged a hard-fought 2-0 win over the Wanderers.
Brisbane Roar strike twice in the second half to secure a 2-0 win vs. Central Coast Mariners.
Robbie Kruse's first A-League goal since 2011 gave Melbourne Victory a 1-0 win over Perth Glory.

Ange Postecoglou is just 90 minutes from what's being hailed as the greatest achievement by an Australian soccer coach with his Yokohama F. Marinos poised to clinch the J-League title next Saturday.

Manchester City ownership group eye India club investment in 2019

The parent company of Premier League champions Manchester City, MLS franchise New York City FC and A-League club Melbourne City expect to add a team in India before the end of the year.
