NEWCASTLE, Australia (AP) - Forward Jaushua Sotirio’s goal in the 17th minute gave Western Sydney a 1-0 win over the Newcastle Jets on Sunday, moving the Wanderers level into first place in the A-League but marginally behind on goal difference with the Brisbane Roar.

With four rounds remaining, the leading pair has 41 points, two ahead of Adelaide, with Melbourne City in fourth with 38 points.

The Roar have a goal differential of plus-9, one better than the Wanderers.

Perth moved into fifth place after a 4-0 win Saturday over Central Coast, a point ahead of the Melbourne Victory, who hold the sixth and final playoff spot.

Sydney FC is in seventh place, three points behind the Victory, and failed to make any headway when beaten 3-1 by Wellington Phoenix.
