Jets lose Neville for the rest of the season
The club's website officially announced Neville's season-ending injury today.
Coach Gary Van Egmond said the player 'felt something click' before being stretchered off in the first half of the match.
Prior to that the 24-year-old defender was involved in some friendly fire when he took a high speed knock to the head from the knee of teammate Kew Jaliens.
Neville wore a knee brace after the game and underwent scans to assess the extent of the damage, which confirmed the club's worst fears.
It was a sour note to end what was a big weekend for the Hunter outfit.
After orchestrating an upset win over Victory, the Jets surged to third on the A-League ladder, just one point behind second-placed Western Sydney Wanderers.
