Heskey continues scoring streak

Emile Heskey's flying start to life in the A-League continued as he scored the winner in Newcastle Jets' 2-1 victory against Sydney Wanderers.

Shinji Ono set up Joey Gibbs to put the Wanderers in front after 14 minutes, but a Ryan Griffiths header in the 27th minute and a deft flick from Heskey nine minutes later saw the Jets come from behind to claim the points.

Keeper Mark Birighitti preserved the Jets' advantage and they even survived the last-minute sending-off of Jacob Pepper for a bad foul on Ono.

Melbourne Victory also came from behind to win, overturning a two-goal deficit to beat Sydney FC 3-2.

After last week's 7-2 loss to Central Coast Mariners, which they had led 2-0 at the break, Sydney were left stunned again after managing to lose from a winning position.

Yairo Yau and Pascal Bosschaart had put them in front before an Andrew Nabbout brace and Archie Thompson strike turned the game on its head in the last 12 minutes. Alessandro Del Piero was substituted in the 65th minute with Sydney winning.

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
