Brisbane Roar claimed a 2-1 win over Adelaide United to virtually seal the Australian A-League Premier's Plate at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.

A Besart Berisha brace after 22 and 52 minutes allowed Mike Mulvey's side to open up a ten-point lead at the top of the table with five rounds remaining before the finals series. Jeronimo Neumann scored a consolation goal at the death to make it 11 matches in a row that Adelaide have found the net.

A late goal from Kenny Cunningham earned Wellington Phoenix a point in a dramatic finale to their 1-1 draw with Perth Glory at Westpac Stadium. Glory opened the scoring through defender William Gallas in the 34th minute, but Costa Rica striker Cunningham nodded home the equaliser with five minutes remaining.
