Commentary

FULL TIME - An incredible second half comes to an end at Suncorp Stadium!  Perth Glory faced a two goal deficit at half time but, on the back of two penalty goals, an own goal and an Andy Keogh header, they have completely overrun Brisbane Roar who played most of the second half a man down after the sending off of Daniel Bowles.  Perth Glory leap back to the top of the table with a 4-2 victory over a gallant Brisbane Roar.
90' + 5' Diego Castro fires at goal from a free kick just outside the penalty area - his effort beats the wall but Jamie Young, who has been superb, manages to parry the shot away to safety.

Brisbane Roar
81' YELLOW CARD ROAR - Aaron Reardon is handed a card for the handball that resulted in a penalty being awarded to Perth Glory.
81' PENALTY!  Fresh onto the field, Brendon Santalab unleashes a shot that takes the raised arms of Aaron Reardon and draws handball claims from Perth Glory.  Referee Adam Kersey turns down the appeals however the VAR overturns the initial decision and so it will be Neil Kilkenny to step up to the spot.

75' Perth have created plenty of opportunities in this second half however some tenacious Brisbane defence together with some Jamie Young heroics are keeping the visitors at bay - for the moment, at least.

72' Joel Chianese cuts back inside the defender to get himself into a dangerous position just inside the penalty area but he attempts one touch too many and is eventually stripped of the ball.
69' Despite trailing on the scoreboard, Perth will back themselves in from here given their excellent record on the road - the Glory have only been held to one goal once in their last six away games this season.
67' CHANCE!  Perth are piling on the pressure now!  Diego Castro unleashes a full blooded shot from close range however Jamie Young throws his left boot at the ball and manages to make the crucial save.

16' CHANCE!  Joel Chianese cuts the ball back to Fábio Ferreira right in front of goal but his flick at goal is brilliantly blocked by Jack Hingert!

8' Joel Chianese is outnumbered by the Roar defence close to the by-line but he manages to win a corner for the visitors.
7' Andy Keogh runs into space inside the box and drags his cross to the danger area off the left foot but he can't find a teammate and the Roar are able to clear.

Let's have a look at the line ups for this match.
On the other side of the ledger, Perth Glory continue to go from strength to strength – their comprehensive 4-1 victory over the Mariners last start was their fourth win from their previous six matches.  The Glory need to just register a point from this evening's fixture to reclaim top spot on the ladder.
Brisbane’s woes so far this season have been well documented – the Roar have registered just one point from their past 6 fixtures.  However, there have been some positive signs of late – most recently, they snatched a point against the Jets after coming from behind to score a late equaliser.
Welcome to Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane where Round 11 concludes with the clash between Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory.
