WATCH: Redmayne ‘gift’ caps off horror first-half as Sky Blues go down to Brisbane

WATCH: Andrew Redamyne's calamitous mistake leads to Brisbane Roar opening up a two-goal lead against Sydney FC.

Andrew Redmayne had a moment he would rather forget in an instant, after a calamitous error led to Nikola Mileusnic giving Brisbane Roar a two-goal lead over Sydney FC at Suncorp Stadium.

Sydney’s evening went from bad to worse in the opening half, after Redmayne failed to clear a bobbling back pass from teammate Gabriel Lacerda.

Redmayne’s clearance went straight up into the air and fell at the feet of Mileusnic, who buried the ball into an empty net.

The goal came after Sydney went a goal behind inside the first minute, after Henry Hore’s deflected effort beat Redmayne.

To Redmayne’s credit, he bounced back brilliantly in the moments after, making quality stops to deny Thomas Waddingham – even though he was offside – and then Jay O’Shea, and Hore as the first-half drew to a close.

Brisbane would go on to win the contest 3-0, with Hore adding a second after half-time, succumbing Sydney to back-to-back defeats to start the season.
