THE Newcastle Knights have redeemed themselves in a last-minute win against Melbourne Storm.

The Knights ran out 32-30 winners at Hunter Stadium on Saturday night.

Sitting in 14th position on the NRL ladder, the Knights are out of contention for a finals berth, but remain in good spirits.

The team dug deep to produce the winning goal on Saturday, just seconds after the full-time siren sounded.

With four points between Newcastle and the two bottom teams, Canberra and Cronulla, all worry about the wooden spoon has dissipated.

The focus now, skipper Kurt Gidley said, was to repay the supporters who have maintained faith in their team throughout the tumultuous season.

The Knights will host the New Zealand Warriors this Sunday, August 17.
