THE Newcastle Jets have finally ended their goal drought, but the mood is still sombre in the dressing room.
Jets defender Scott Neville opened the scoring against the Central Coast Mariners in the second half of last Saturday's F3 derby.
It was the first score of the A-League season for the Jets and was celebrated by a 13,744-strong home crowd at Hunter Stadium.
The final result was a 2-all draw between Newcastle and the Central Coast.
Despite the Jets moving up the ladder, coach Garry van Egmond said he was disappointed that the team had not been able to secure a win four games into the season.
"It was the same as last week. We were disappointed," van Egmond said.
"We've shown that we're competitive, but at the end of the day you've got to be able to close out games and take three points."
