Wanderers dominate A-League champions

  • Wanderers dominate A-League champions

The Western Sydney Wanderers have served up a cold dish of revenge by thrashing defending A-League premiers, Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium last night.

The Wanderers who are sitting at the bottom of the A-League ladder showcased a scintillating first half with two goals and an own goal.

Nikita Rukavytsya opened the scoring account in the 20th minute placing the ball in the bottom left past Brisbane’s keeper, which was assisted by Labinot Haliti.

The visitors were pushing the Roar and proving to be dangerous with the ball until Western Sydney youngster, Jonathan Aspropotamitis popped it into the back of his own net. The Wanderers hit back three minutes later with a goal by Auburn boy, Kerem Bulut giving the last placed Wanderers the lead into the break.

The second half was much of the same for the home side as the Asian champions piled on the pressure and in the 58th minute, Dutch import, Romeo Castelen sliced through tired defenders to score the Wanderers third goal.

Brisbane looked deflated and the Wanderers capitalised with a last minute goal by Bulut making him the Wanderers highest goal scorer this season.

The Wanderers will travel to Western Australia, in the hope of claiming back to back wins for the first time this season to play fourth placed Perth Glory on Saturday.
