Roar tops in­jury-hit Wan­der­ers

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport -

BRIS­BANE has fi­nally got their A-League sea­son on track, snatch­ing a sorely needed 2-0 win off a tepid and in­jury-hit Western Syd­ney.

Ivan Fran­jic marked his re­turn to the Roar with a sub­lime sec­ond-half strike to com­ple­ment Mas­simo Mac­carone’s opener at a wind and rain­swept ANZ Sta­dium yes­ter­day.

The sec­ond win in nine games lifted John Aloisi’s strug­gling side from ninth to sev­enth on the lad­der, and pushed the Wan­der­ers down a slot to eighth and still search­ing for a first win since round one.

Western Syd­ney was left with a moun­tain to climb after los­ing both Oriol Riera and Jaushua Sotirio to in­jury in the first half, leav­ing new coach Josep Gom­bau with some se­ri­ous headaches.

The re­sult aside, the hosts started well in con­trol.
