Hyundai A-League results, video and reaction: Round 16

Here’s your Monday morning recap of Round 16 Hyundai A-League action as the Wanderers finally won a home game, Cahill bagged a brace and Maclaren won it for Roar.

Melbourne City 2-1 Central Coast Mariners

The Mariners were on the back foot before kick off after they arrived late to AAMI on Thursday night, and Tim Cahill soon had them on the back foot on the pitch with two first-half goals. A red card to goal-scorer Roy O’Donovan didn’t help the Mariners, either.

Wellington Phoenix 0-1 Brisbane Roar

Three home games in a week and with two wins racked up, Phoenix were desperate for the trifecta. Roar sub Jamie Maclaren had other ideas, though, as he fired Brisbane to a desperately needed win on the road to reignite their top four hopes.

The Glory revival is now in full bloom as Kenny Lowe’s men came from a goal down to score twice in a scorching final 30 minutes to see off Victory, who missed a first half penalty courtesy of Liam Reddy’s save against Besart Berisha.
