Newcastle Jets 0 Sydney 1: Janko's red-hot run goes on

Marquee striker Marc Janko scored in a record-equalling sixth-straight match as Sydney edged out Newcastle Jets 1-0 at Hunter Stadium.

Sydney moved second in the A-League courtesy of a tight 1-0 win over Newcastle Jets that saw striker Marc Janko equal league history.

Janko, who now has 13 goals for the season, pounced on a Jets defensive error midway through the second half to give the Sky Blues all three points.

The Austrian's goal means he has now scored in a record six consecutive matches, equaling the mark set by Besart Berisha.
