Former Newcastle Jets striker Adam Taggart added to his collection of happy memories of his old home ground after his late header earned Perth Glory an away point in a 2-2 A-League thriller on Sunday.
The Jets looked set to start their season with successive wins until Taggart's well-placed header in the second half of stoppage time at McDonald Jones Stadium
Taggart's second goal secured Perth's first point of the season.
"To equalise in the last minute gives us a lot of confidence and hopefully momentum going into the next few games," Taggart said.
Taggart opened the scoring in the eighth minute when he neatly flicked home a fine right-wing cross from Diego Castro.
The brace maintained his good scoring record at the ground where he was the hero of Jets fans from 2012-14, winning the Golden Boot in 2014.
"It's still a special stadium for me, it's really nice to pay here and there's so many good memories coming back here," he said.
Newcastle coach Ernie Merrick lamented several missed opportunities after they came from behind the second-straight week.
Irishman Roy O'Donovan followed up his hat-trick in the Jets' 5-1 opening round away win over Central Coast, with an equaliser in front of 14,833 fans.
Ben Kantarovski put them ahead with a close-range shot on the hour, after a Nikolai Topor-Stanley header from a Dimi Petratos corner hit a post.
They had more chances to extend their lead, but Petratos and Ronald Vargas had attempts saved by Glory goalkeeper Liam Reddy..
"We had more than enough chances to win that game," Merrick said.
"Again we conceded a goal early and we showed the resilience to come back to score two goals.
"We played some good football and we've come away with the feeling that we've thrown away a couple of points.
"We had several chances to go further ahead and we didn't take them.
Perth persisted and Taggart was denied once by a good save from Jack Duncan before finding the net for a second time.
Glory coach Kenny Lowe praised his side's fitness after they finished on top for a second straight week.
"We could have pinched something last week at Western Sydney but it wasn't to be, but we definitely deserved something today I think," Lowe said
"We're a little a bit of a slow burn I think. We've got six of our first nine away , so we've got a fair old schedule in the early part of the season."
