Liberty A-League report: Roar outmuscled by Sydney FC

Liberty A-League report: Roar outmuscled by Sydney FC

Sydney FC proved too strong for Brisbane Roar on Wednesday as the Liberty A-League leaders claimed a 2-0 win at Leichhardt Oval.

Early goals in each half and a red card for Annabel Haffenden in the 59th minute meant the Roar were forced to head home empty handed from a clash with the competition’s only unbeaten team.

Brisbane knocked on the door in the first half but were unable to find a way past Jada Whyman, who set a league record with an eighth consecutive clean sheet.

One upside for the Roar was the involvement of 17-year-old substitute Aleeah Davern, who became the seventh player to earn a Liberty A-League debut for the club this season.

Next up for Garrath McPherson’s side is a home game against Adelaide United next Sunday, 13 February, part of a double-header involving the Isuzu UTE A-League team’s meeting with Macarthur FC.

GOALS

Sydney FC | Maria Jose Rojas (5′)

1-0 – Charlize Rule’s cross finds an unmarked Rojas, who sweeps home a tidy first-time finish.

Sydney FC | Charlize Rule (49′)

2-0 – Following a corner, Rojas hooks the ball back dangerous towards goal. Mia Bailey manages to claw it off the line but Rule is well-placed to nod the loose ball into the net.
