Wanderers win from behind over Roar

The Western Sydney Wanderers continued their excellent run in their debut A-League season, scoring two late goals to edge hapless Brisbane Roar 2-1 at Suncorp Stadium.

The Roar looked set to get their title defence back on track after two straight losses by leading 1-0 midway through the second half but the Wanderers turned the match on its head with two goals in four minutes.

The Roar seemed in control before Western Sydney marksman Mark Bridge fed off Jerome Polenz to lock up the scores in the 65th minute, silencing the 11,917-strong crowd.

And the Suncorp Stadium faithful were on their feet in the 69th - for all the wrong reasons - after Japanese import Shinji Ohno appeared off-side in the lead-up to Youssouf Hersi's match-winner.

There were more headaches for Roar coach Mike Mulvey - both prized marksman Besart Berisha and Shane Stefanutto earned their fifth yellow cards in the match to ensure they will miss the next A-League round.

Brisbane had grabbed a 22nd minute lead via a Mitch Nichols goal set up by the impressive Luke Brattan before hitting the ground running in the second half.

After a nightmare lead-up in which the Roar lost captain Matt Smith (hip), prized import Jade North (fitness) and key midfielder Erik Paartalu (Chinese Super League) the home side had looked the goods until the last quarter capitulation.

It marked the third straight win over the Roar for newcomers the Wanderers and their third consecutive victory overall as they all but locked up a top four spot.

The second-last Roar are now just one point clear of cellar dwellers Wellington.

It continued Mulvey's horror run as replacement Roar coach this season.

He has lost four of six games since taking over from Rado Vidosic last month.
