Brisbane Roar ended an eight-match winless run in the A-League as they beat Macarthur 2-1 at Campbelltown Stadium.
The hosts had won their past three league matches on home soil but succumbed to goals in each half from Dylan Wenzel-Halls and Riku Danzaki, with Lachlan Rose netting a late reply.
It represents a measure of revenge for Brisbane, who suffered a 2-0 reverse to the Bulls in February, which proved to be the starting point of their long victory drought.
Macarthur stay third, with the Roar climbing to seventh, six points behind their hosts but with two games in hand.
Wenzel-Halls put Warren Moon’s men ahead after 12 minutes, arrowing a fine strike beyond Adam Federici from the edge of the box.
Danzaki’s close-range finish put the game beyond Macarthur’s reach just before the hour mark, ensuring Rose’s first A-League goal was a mere consolation.
