Roar return to the summit

Brisbane Roar returned to the top of the A-League table following a hard-fought 3-1 win over Western Sydney Wanderers at the Suncorp Stadium on Friday.

First-half strikes from the returning Besart Berisha and Ivan Franjic proved decisive for the Roar, who withstood a fight back from the visitors before Kwame Yeboah settled the result with a sharp finish in injury time.

Brendon Santalab scored for the Wanderers in the 28th minute with his first goal for the club since his off-season move from Chinese side Chongqing Lifan.

However, it was not enough to maintain the visitors' undefeated start to the campaign.

The result was Brisbane's fifth victory of the season, and first against the Wanderers from five attempts, as Mike Mulvey's men sought to establish their title credentials against a side touted as early-season championship favourites.

Berisha opened the scoring after five minutes with a weaving run through the visiting defence. His initial shot was blocked but he reacted well to fire home at the second attempt.

Franjic volleyed home a second from 30 yards to double Brisbane's advantage but the game was thrown wide-open once again when some sloppy defending allowed Santalab to nip in and chip over advancing Roar goalkeeper Michael Theo.

Santalab headed against the bar after 66 minutes before Brisbane sealed it when 19-year-old Yeboah broke down the left flank before cutting inside and striking a fierce shot past Ante Covic with his right foot.
