The Central Coast Mariners have moved in to the top six of the A-League at just the right time following a thrilling 4-2 win over the Newcastle Jets.
The Mariners are now priced at 4/7 to finish in the top six and play finals but they were made to work by the Jets on Saturday.
Central Coast were cruising at half-time as a brace by Jason Cummings and a further strike by Moresche had them 3-0 up and in full control.
But the Jets came flying out of the traps after the re-start and pulled it back to 3-2 within five minutes. Lucas Mauragis and an own-goal by Jacob Farrell lit the game up.
However the Mariners dug deep and finally settled the game in the 91st minute thanks to Garang Kuol. Much to the relief of boss Nick Montgomery.
"Football's the best game in the world and that's the reason why," Montgomery told reporters after the game. "3-0, we're cruising before two of the sloppiest goals we've conceded. But after that, I thought we could have killed the game off so many times.
"I think on entertainment value, tonight both sides were as good as anyone.”
Meanwhile Jets boss Arthur Papas was left fuming after an equalising goal from Savvas Siatravanis was ruled out by VAR in the 82nd minute of the game.
"Probably a game decided by a decision from the referee," Papas said. "It's a goal. That's it. I don't know how that call's made. This game shouldn't have been about a refereeing decision."
