Aussies abroad wrap: Jones’ Feyenoord win again

Recently recalled Caltex Socceroos keeper Brad Jones has helped Feyenoord to a fourth-straight win in the Eredivisie overnight.

The 36-year-old started between the posts and helped his side to a 3-1 win away to the struggling FC Twente.

An error from Jones did gift Twente an equaliser midway through the first half but the shot-stopper steadied as Feyenoord went on to claim a comfortable victory. 

After notching a record 14 clean sheets in the Eredivisie last season, Jones has again been in super touch this campaign, making 29 of a possible 30 appearances in the league.

He has conceded just 33 goals in 29 appearances, the third lowest in the league behind only AZ Alkmaar’s Marco Bizot and Ajax’s Andre Onana.
