FULL TIME - BRISBANE 1 PERTH 1 - It ends all square in Redcliffe with both sides scoring in either half and they will have to settle for a point each. It was a fair result in the end with Perth the better side in the 1st half and the Roar being the better team in the 2nd half. Perth go to equal 2nd with this point while Brisbane sit in 6th and now have a 5 point gap to Western United in 7th 
90' + 3' Wenzel-Halls gets away down the wing and Tratt comes up with a big block on his cross 
89' Perth break forward and Kilkenny has his shot from outside the box blocked. Both teams now pushing hard for the winner 
88' Brisbane now pushing for a winner with Hingert's cross getting blocked away for a corner

Yellow Card
80' Yellow card Alexander Grant
78' Castro gets a shot away this time but again it's been deflected and it's easy for Young to claim 
77' The Roar defence do enough to stop that attack with Castro trying to find space to get his shot away but it's blocked away by Neville 
K. Popovic
J. Brimmer
75' Substitution Jake Brimmer Kristian Popovic
73' Amadi-Holloway uses his strength to create a chance for himself but his shot is blocked by the defence. Good lead up work by the Roar on a number of occasions but the finishing touch isn't there as of yet 
71' Franjic's cross into the area is a good one and it almost falls for Fornaroli but the ball spins away and the Roar can clear it away from danger
69' Good build up from the home side with Neville finding McDonald with his cross but his header goes across goal and Brisbane have a corner 
67' Kilkenny gets a second chance to put a cross into the area and it's a really good one but it doesn't get the finish it deserved as Grant just misses it
66' Castro finds Chianese whose first involvement sees him winning a corner for his side 
J. Chianese
N. D'Agostino
64' Substitution Nicholas D'Agostino Joel Joseph Chianese
63' O'Neill has a shot from outside the box but it has no power and Reddy will claim it comfortably

Yellow Card
57' Yellow card Tomislav Mrčela
55' Great lead up from Perth with Castro heavily involved in trying to fashion a chance and there's finally a shot that comes in from Brimmer but it goes high and wide
52' D'Agostino's flick for Meredith in the box is a great one but a challenge in the box by the Roar is a great one and it denies the Glory a chance for a shot on goal. Fornaroli and Castro now combine and almost create an opportunity 
50' Brown's cross from the left is whipped into the box but no one is there for the home side but Grant has to get the ball behind as he concedes a corner 
48' D'Agostino wins a free kick and the ball is lofted into the box and O'Neill comes away with it and is challenged by Brimmer 
A. Amadi-Holloway
J. Pepper

HALF TIME - BRISBANE 0 PERTH 1 - The Perth Glory take a 1-0 lead into the sheds at half time with Fornaroli's 33rd minute goal the only difference between the sides so far. Perth have had the better play and chances and deserve their lead. Brisbane had some half chances to get on the scoresheet but they will need to do more in attack in the 2nd half if they are to get back into it 
45' Hingert makes a good run down the right but the ball is too deep and Reddy will get there and clear it away 
43' Corey Brown is found well by O'Neill but he is clearly offside and the chance is gone 
41' Good build up from the Roar with Brown getting down the left and cutting it back for McDonald who had a chance to shoot but he puts his shot wide of the target 
38' Glory's spell of dominance produced a goal and now the Roar have some time on the ball as they look for the equaliser 
36' Castro's cross to the back post is a good one and D'Agostino gets his header on target but it's an easy one for Young to claim 
35' Another chance for Perth with D'Agostino finding Castro on the right in plenty of space and he aims his shot at the near post but Young has it covered 
33' GOAL PERTH! What a good goal from the Glory who open the scoring and it's from Fornaroli whose close control is great, he spins away from a defender and his shot takes a little deflection off Pepper that gives Young no chance. 1-0 Glory 
Diego Castro
33' Assist Diego Castro Giménez
B. Fornaroli
33' Goal Bruno Fornaroli Mezza
30' Good chance for the Glory with Brimmer having a shot and then the ball gets out to Meredith whose cross is blocked and it deflects back off him for a goal kick
29' O'Shea had a chance to whip a ball into the box from the right wing but he puts too much on it and Reddy will have a goal kick 
27' Nice play from Perth with Fornaroli trying to feed Castro through but a good tackle by O'Neill gets the ball away from danger 
25' Kilkenny goes to the back post with his free kick looking for Mrcela but there's too much on it and Young will have the goal kick 
23' A long pass to the right for Castro is just a bit too deep for the winger to get to and it will be a goal kick 
21' Nice work from Brisbane with O'Neill winning the ball back and a pass going to McDonald who is pushed over in the box by Franjic but the Glory will be let off the hook here as McDonald was offside
18' Castro gives Fornaroli a nice pass and the Glory striker has a shot on the turn but the shot is expertly blocked by Aldred away for a corner 
17' O'Shea tries to put Inman through on the left but the ball is cut out and Glory will get back on the ball
15' Glory continuing to dominate possession as Brisbane drop back to defend. 
13' Castro finds D'Agostino at the top of the box and his shot goes straight into the gloves of Jamie Young in the Brisbane goal 
11' Castro tries to create a chance down the right for the Glory but Brown defends it well. Glory with more possession in good areas so far but no scoring chances have been created as of yet 
9' Hingert and O'Shea play a 1-2 and Hingert drifts into an offside position trying to get in behind the Glory defence 
8' Kilkenny's pass over the top finds Fornaroli who holds it up and tries a shot from outside the box but he's dragged it wide of the target 
6' O'Shea has his attempted shot blocked and it flies away for the Roar's first corner of the game 
5' Neville's high ball tries to find McDonald behind the defence but he fouls Mrcela with a push in the back. Good defending by the Glory man 
3' Young comes out of his goal to chase down a through ball but the ball deflects out to Franjic and his cross is blocked away for the game's first corner 
2' Perth with the early possession as they play it around the back looking for a chance to get it forward.

Welcome to Redcliffe where the Brisbane Roar host the Perth Glory as Round 20 of the A-League continues this afternoon. The Roar have had a good run of form the last few weeks as they have gone from the bottom of the table to 6th and will go up to 5th spot if they take all 3 points in this one. The Glory will have something to say about that as they return to A-League action after a loss in the ACL and they will want to bounce back. A win will take them up to 2nd position on the ladder. Kick off next
