Brisbane Roar received back to winning ways in the A-League with a 3-1 win over Perth Glory on Friday to extend their lead over Western Sydney Wanderers to seven points.
The league leaders had lost their last two games and had been unable break by in the first half as Sidnei Sciola spurned two chances.
The finally made their possession count with slightly below an hour gone after defender Ivan Franjic headed in a Thomas Broich free kick.
Former Manchester United midfielder Liam Miller then doubled the advantage over his former club and Broich got his title on the scoresheet with a shocking strike from distance.
Shane Smeltz seized on a poor move to grab a late consolation for Perth, who’ve now misplaced four in a row and sit bottom of the desk.
