Brisbane Roar FC have secured a much needed 3-0 win over Redlands United at Cleveland Showgrounds on Sunday night.
Roar dominated from the outset, with two quick goals to Nathan Yoon and Finn Beakhurst pushing the visitors to a comfortable lead over Redlands.
Despite a flurry of chances in the second half, Redlands were unable to convert, and Rahmat Akbari's strike put the game beyond doubt.
Roar host Brisbane Olympic next weekend, eager to build on tonight's impressive win, while Redlands play Sunshine Coast at home.
11' - GOAL FOR ROAR - Nathan Yoon fakes a shot in the box, drawing out Denver Crickmore for the save, but dribbles past him.
20' - GOAL FOR ROAR - Finn Beakhurst receives a through ball for a one-on-one with Crickmore and slots it home, just out of Crickmore's reach.
38' - CHANCE FOR REDLANDS - Sam Roper's shot is just over the crossbar after some excellent passing from his teammates.
52' - GOAL FOR ROAR - Rahmat Akbari is played the ball and again Crickmore comes out to block the shot but Akbari works his way around.
66' - CHANCE FOR REDLANDS - Jake Sherwood works the ball up the field before switching it to Alexander Warrilow, then back to Sherwood who puts a cross in for Feli Sheriff but his shot is off the mark.
87 - CHANCE FOR ROAR - Two clear chances on goal both skim the outer goal posts.
