Perth Glory kept their hopes of Premier Plate glory alive with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Newcastle Jets at Hunter Stadium on Monday.

In a match played in driving rain, the Glory were second best for much of the contest but took the lead through leading scorer Andy Keogh just after half-time.

The Jets wasted a host of gilt-edged chances throughout the contest and were made to pay as Glory substitute Nebojsa Marinkovic sealed the visitors’ win with a thumping strike in the final 10 minutes.

Keogh’s 50th-minute opener saw him plant a close-range header past Ben Kennedy from Jamie MacLaren’s cross.

And Keogh was also involved in Perth’s second goal as he flicked a long ball into the path of Marinkovic, who found the net with a rasping drive.

Perth are now level on points with leaders Melbourne Victory, while the Jets remain rock-bottom.
