Western Sydney Wanderers kept their faint hope of making it to the final series playoffs alive with a two-nil win over Brisbane Roar on Sunday.
The hosts took their season tally to 34 points for the season—two behind 6th placed Macarthur FC, who will play their next tomorrow.
Goals from Bernie Ibini-Isei and Bruce Kamau over both halves ensured that the Wanderers emerged victorious from a scrappy affair at Bankwest Stadium.
Brisbane Roar, meanwhile, could not build on their impressive win over Melbourne City last time out and missed the chance of confirming their place in the final series with the loss.
The hosts began the game well and took the lead in the 28th minute when Ibini found the back of the net with an outside of the box shot that a diving Jamie Young couldn’t reach.
Striker Bruce Kamau then sealed the win for Kenny Miller’s side in the 88th minute with a cool finish.
The win means that WS Wanderers still have a slim chance of making it to the final series if they win their last match against Perth Glory on Wednesday as long as other results go their way.
Brisbane Roar, meanwhile, tried their best in the game but couldn’t find a way past Daniel Margush in the Wanderers goal. They will now have to pick up maximum points against Adelaide on Wednesday to book a place in the playoffs.
