Tom Aldred scored the winner with his first A-League goal as Brisbane Roar came from behind to end Adelaide United’s three-game winning run with a 2-1 victory at a sodden Suncorp Stadium.
After a fiery but goalless first half, Ben Halloran put Adelaide ahead against his former club by superbly picking out the bottom-left corner from outside the area after a shot had deflected into his path.
With 22 minutes remaining, a scrappy equaliser after some frantic Adelaide blocks got Brisbane level, with substitute Mirza Muratovic eventually finding the top corner after a goalmouth scramble.
The winner arrived in the 74th minute, as a great move from a corner led to Scott McDonald’s delivery finding captain Aldred, who headed home at the back post to move his side up to sixth in the table, one place and two points behind Adelaide.
Saturday’s contest came after the derby match between leaders Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers had been called off due to torrential rain.
