Big result goes City’s way which almost seals their spot in the finals. Frustrating night for Brisbane who failed to create any decent chances on goal. Their heavy schedule and injuries/unavailabilities of key players obviously hurting them. City make it three wins in a row whilst Brisbane are consigned to a fourth defeat in four A-League games. Thank you for joining me here at The Roar.
