Wanderers keeper Vedran Janjetovic has registered four errors leading to goals this season, twice as many as the next-placed player. One of those errors came against Roar the last time the sides met.
There have been 30 goals scored across the Wanderers’ last six games played away from home in the Hyundai A-League, with the Wanderers picking up just one win in the process (D2, L3).
Brisbane Roar have been losing at half-time in each of their last three Hyundai A-League games against Western Sydney Wanderers at Suncorp Stadium; however, they’ve gone on to taste defeat only once in that period (W1, D1).
Welcome to Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane where the Roar host the Wanderers in this Round 21 clash. Both of those sides have had disapponting seasons with the Wanderers in 8th and the Roar in 9th place. A win for the Roar will take them above the Wanderers into 8th but a loss for the home side will see them fall five points behind.
