The Newcastle Jets admit there is still a lot of improvement needed if they are to maintain top position on the A league ladder. The jets trained at Ray Watt Oval this morning, with an emphasis on the team’s defence strategy.

Coach Gary Van Egmond is concentrating on improving the side’s passing game following Fridays 2-1 win over the Melbourne Victory.

Midfielder, Jobe Wheelhouse told reporters there’s plenty of room for improvement but said they were getting the results while still not playing their best, which is a sign of a good team.
