Roar draw 1-1 with Adelaide

The last time Brisbane Roar hosted Adelaide United at Suncorp Stadium the all-conquering A-League champions hammered the Reds 7-1.

How times have changed.

Still reeling from a mid-week Asian Champions League loss, the once bullet-proof Roar looked positively human as they missed a chance to reclaim the A-League ladder lead when they scrambled for a 1-1 draw with lowly Adelaide on Sunday.

Brisbane looked like the Roar of old in a perfect build-up before last Tuesday night's Asian Champions League debut, only to be outclassed 2-0 by FC Tokyo at Suncorp Stadium.

In contrast, second-last Adelaide United were out of the A-League finals mix and seemingly down and out when they arrived in freezing Uzbekistan mid-week for their ACL opener against FC Bunyodkor before emerging surprise 2-1 victors.

As a result, the form guide was thrown out the window on Sunday as Adelaide went within a whisker of causing one of the season boilovers in front of a 10,739-strong Suncorp Stadium crowd.

The Roar suffered their first loss since the end of January when they went down to FC Tokyo - and it could so easily have been two straight on Sunday.

Indeed the omens weren't good when Adelaide United drew first blood in the 14th minute through Iain Ramsay and Roar young gun Luke Bratten was stretchered off in the 26th with what appeared to be a serious knee injury.

Fringe Olyroo Bratten was making a rare start after the Roar had lost midfield workhorse Massimo Murdocca (shoulder) and playmaker Mitch Nichols (groin).

And even though the Roar did draw level through Besart Berisha's 18th goal of the season, everything seemed to go awry for Brisbane with the usually reliable Thomas Broich duffing four scoring chances.

While slow out of the blocks, the Roar almost drew first blood when goalkeeper Mark Birighitti's clearance ricocheted off Broich in the seventh minute, only for the ball to narrowly miss the goal.

However, Adelaide United justifiably took the lead in the 14th minute.

And Dario Vidosic - who reportedly had a move back to his former club Brisbane blocked by the Adelaide board during the January transfer window - was the provider.

He let loose Bruce Djite who provided a wonderful cross that Ramsay drilled home in stunning fashion.

And Vidosic should have made it 2-0 in the 36th minute, however, he inexplicably sprayed the ball across an open goal.

Brisbane finally got on the board when super sub Kofi Danning pounced on a Zenon Caravella turnover and set up Berisha for yet another season goal in the 70th minute.

It was another missed opportunity for the Roar who had a chance to leapfrog ladder leaders Central Coast - who play in Perth on Sunday night - with a win.
