NEWCASTLE Jets continued their recent dominance of Brisbane Roar with a 6-1 hammering at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.
The Jets now have five wins and a draw from their past six games with Brisbane.
They also extended their remarkable record on Brisbane's home turf, where they have won 13 times in 20 visits dating back to the A-League's inaugural season.
Jets winger Joey Champness, a former Brisbane youth-team player, returned to haunt his former club.
In a game that was effectively a dead rubber, given that neither team can reach the play-offs, Champness opened the scoring in the 23rd minute and then provided a goal assist for Roy O'Donovan five minutes later.
It was the Irishman's 10th goal of the season.
Zac Duncan scored for Brisbane early in the second half to reduce the deficit to 2-1, but Newcastle finished strongly with further goals by O'Donovan (55th minute), Dimi Petratos (65th), Champness (69th) and substitute Kwabena Appiah in injury time.
The win ensures Newcastle will finish no lower than seventh on the points table.
The Jets host Sydney FC on Saturday week in their final match of the season.
