Brisbane Roar rejoice clinching the Premiers Plate.

George Bratton’s aim two minutes into stoppage time noticed Brisbane Roar clinch the Premiers Plate with a 1-0 win over second-placed Melbourne Victory.

Brattan fired in from the sting of the area just as it appeared time had run out on Roar’s bid to wrap up the silverware on Saturday.

The win, their fifteenth from 24 video games, lifted them 12 factors clear of Victory. Earlier, Newcastle Jets hammered Wellington Phoenix 5-0, with 4 of the objectives coming within the second half.

Emile Heskey’s thirty fifth-minute objective – his first of the season – was all that separated the teams at half-time, however after Joel Griffiths doubled the lead in the first minute of the second period, Adam Taggart added a brace before Michael Bridges finished it off in stoppage time.
