Roar up to second thanks to Gielnik’s brace against WanderersBrisbane Roar have come from behind to beat Western Sydney Wanderers 2-1 on Thursday night to move into second spot on the Westfield W-League ladder. All the goals came in a thrilling first-half, that saw the Wanderers take an early lead thanks to a fantastic goal from Leena Khamis. But it was Emily Gielnik who stole the show, scoring a quickfire brace to hand Roar a third straight win to lift them above Canberra United on the table.
It was Gielnik’s sixth career double on the Westfield W-League, while she has joined Michelle Heyman at the top of the Golden Boot standings with six goals for the campaign. The Wanderers, who needed a win to keep their finals hopes alive, threw everything at the Roar after the break but were denied on two occasions by the woodwork. Dean Heffernan’s side remain in eighth place on four points, six adrift of the top four.

Pressing up the park, slick movement (on and off the ball) and quick transition have been the hallmarks of their victories this season. The Wanderers, conversely, will be happier with a slower tempo match allowing their creative midfield trio the time to set up and craft attacks. What will key for the Wanderers is that their Michelle Carney and Catherine Cannuli continue to fire as this is almost the last roll of the finals dice.
