BRISBANE Roar winger Tommy Oar says the team paid for its own errors after a 3-2 defeat to the Newcastle Jets at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.

The loss was the Roar's second in a row and the team has now not won in three games.

Oar's volley gave the team the lead before Andrew Hoole's equaliser right on half-time.

Andrew Nabbout gave the visitors the lead midway through the second half and a late goal from Morten Nordstrand proved to be the winner after Jamie Maclaren looked to have earned his side a share of the spoils from the penalty spot.

Oar broke his duck for the season but he said defensive lapses either side of the break cost John Aloisi's men.

"I think we were the victims of our own mistakes,” the 25-year-old told ABC Grandstand.

"All the goals they scored, obviously they took them well, but they came off our own mistakes.

"From that perspective it was a bit disappointing.”

Jets midfielder Wayne Brown departed the contest at the break to dash to hospital after his wife went in labour, with Chinese import Ma Leilei entering the fray.

The result moved Newcastle back up to sixth on the table, while the Roar stayed fourth ahead of next week's clash with Melbourne Victory.
