Commentary

FULL TIME - PHOENIX 2 ROAR 2 - The two sides gave us a great second half with 4 goals and they share two goals each as the match ends in a draw. A share of the points was probably the fair result today but it is a result neither team wanted. 
90' Burns again gets into the area and has his shot blocked this time. Wellington are pushing hard for that 3rd goal. You wouldn't put it past them now to get that go ahead goal. 
88' What a counter attack from Wellington. Burns drives right at the heart of the Brisbane defence and tries to curl a shot home with his right foot but the ball smashes against the crossbar 
87' Kaludjerovic gets away from a defender and tries a shot but he has an air-swing and it's easy for Brisbane to clear it.
86' Penalty shout now down the other end with Bowles almost giving away a foul in the area. Referee waves play on again 
84' What a chance for Brisbane. Galloway loses the ball and Maccarone drives into the area and sees Khalfallah on the right and the winger puts his shot wide. 
83' Gameiro drives into the area and comes into contact with Cacace and there's a penalty shout for Brisbane but the referee waves it away 
82' Burns gets crowded out by the defence as he goes for a shot but it pops out to Parkhouse who can't get his shot on target

68' GOAL BRISBANE! ROAR 2 PHOENIX 2 - A corner has paid off for the Roar this time as a good delivery in finds Maccarone who hits his header at Parkhouse but the rebound goes out to Kristensen who can't miss from close range. Scores level again

Goal
65' GOAL PHOENIX! PHOENIX 2 ROAR 1 - Wellington have the lead for the first time today with Rogerson scoring his first A-League goal. Burns was able to get past a defender and then hang up a cross to the backpost and young Rogerson was there to meet it and put it into the back of the net

HALF TIME - PHOENIX 0 ROAR 0 - Both teams have plenty of chances in this first half but neither are able to open the scoring as we go to the break level. The sides have produced some good build up play but there's been no end product as of yet. All to play for in the second half

43' Ljujic hasn't been successful with his shots today as another one of his goes high and wide of the target

25' Good work from Brisbane in the lead up sees Holman take another shot from outside the area which goes high and wide of the target

4' Kaludjerovic gets away down the right but his cross back into the middle is too deep and the Roar breathe a sigh of relief 
3' McKay has a shot from just outside the area but it flies just over the crossbar. Too much space there for Brisbane to get a shot away
