The Central Coast Mariners extended their unbeaten streak to five matches on Sunday, claiming a 2-1 triumph over Brisbane Roar in Gosford.

Bernie Ibini gave the home side an early lead before Massimo Murdocca hit back for the Roar and Socceroo Tomas Rogic scored the decisive goal in the 81st minute to see the Mariners move to within two points of A-League leaders Adelaide.

The match started in hot conditions and the Mariners began brightly, with Ibini’s second goal of the season coming in the fourth minute.

The Nigerian-born striker headed home past Michael Theo after a Pedj Bojic cross from the right edge of the penalty box.

On 32 minutes, Murdocca struck just his third goal in eight seasons when he blasted home a shot from the edge of area after a corner from Thomas Broich.

Brisbane dominated possession in the second half, but the Mariners spurned two good chances in the 65th minute.

Firstly McBreen was wasteful after Rogic had sliced through the Roar defence and then Sainsbury headed over the bar from the ensuing corner kick.

Those misses did not matter, however, when Rogic netted 10 minutes from the end and Mariners substitute striker Mitchell Duke struck the crossbar late on, but failed to extend the lead.
