The shootout came after 120 mins of play, during a finish of that a teams were unresolved during 1-1 interjection to some conspicuous goalkeeping.

Theo had looked usually about unfit to pass by a initial half, creation one implausible save after another while a Wanderers total a best chances, though even he could not keep a Roar from going into a mangle one idea down.

With a summons imminent, Brendon Santalab was brought down in a box and Terry Antonis bloody his shot by a hands of a diving Theo.

But, 10 mins after a break, a Roar found an equaliser as dual of their biggest aggressive weapons combined.

Brandon Borrello found a right post with a rocket of a shot, that rebounded into a trail of Jamie Maclaren, who belted home on 55 minutes.

It looked like that combo would mix in identical conform for a leader in a 90th minute, usually to be kept out by some Vedran Janjetovic brilliance.

Borrello, on a finish of a prolonged round from Thomas Broich, dismissed a bombardment from a dilemma of a six-yard box, though Janjetovic constructed a overwhelming save to keep it out.

The round was still in play, holding a high rebound off a woodwork. It seemed it would lift to Maclaren on a conflicting side of a goal, though it took another rebound off a crossbar, and a subsequent shot was deflected away.

Borrello was constantly threatening, though could not find a behind of a net again until he potted a initial of a shootout.
