Phil Jones is known for his goalscoring prowess and has scored just five competitive goals in his career.
The Manchester United central defender had just one more time but their pre-season friendly with Leeds on Wednesday.
The Red Devils were in Perth 4-0 victory over rivals.
Jones scored the third goal of the match after coming on in the second half. His bullet header found the back of the net in the 51st minute.

David Moyes was still in charge of the club.
Just a month after the defender scored his last goal, Moyes was sacked with Ryan Giggs put in temporary charge.
Louis van Gaal's two season spell yields no goals for him while he has also found the net in Jose Mourinho's two-and-a-half years at the helm at Old Trafford.

The center-back could also be playing for place in United's side for next season.
Rumors continue that the Red Devils are trying to sign Harry Maguire with some reports suggesting they want to send Jones in the opposite direction.
