Back-To-Back Win For Wanderers After 2-0 Defeat Of Brisbane Roar

Western Sydney Wanderers made it back-to-back wins last Friday after their 2-0 victory over Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium.

The hosts were on the front foot early but without carving out clear chances, whilst the visitors were more clinical of the two.

Riera opened the scoring for Wanderers, in the 28th minute with his sixth of the season. Bridge smashed a low ball past Young’s left glove to give them the winner in the 44th minute and hand the Roar their fifth home defeat.

Adelaide United have returned to winning ways after defeating Perth Glory 3-0 at nib Stadium on Friday night.

The Reds opened the scoring in the 10th minute through Daniel Adlung, who later went off just before half time with a back complaint.

Nathan Konstandopoulos scored a brilliant second 61 minutes later, while substitute Johan Absalonsen made it 3 when he picked off a Liam Reddy error in the 85th minute to net his 3rd goal of the season.

On Saturday Melbourne Victory were held to a 1-1 draw by the Central Coast Mariners at Kardinia Park in Geelong.

The homeside dominated play but rarely able to produce in the final third. Besart Berisha scored the opener in the 48th minute, which was cancelled out by substitute Blake Powell in the 71st minute in the sweltering conditions.

In Saturday’s other match, Wellington Phoenix let another lead slip as they went down 2-1 to Melbourne City at AAMI Park, their eighth defeat in 13 games so far this season.

Roy Krishna had put the visitors ahead in the 42nd minute but 19-year-old Daniel Arzani came off the bench in the 20th minute to change the contest, by setting up both of Ross McCormack’s goals, the first by equalising in the 72nd minute and the winner in the 80th.
