Central Coast Mariners 0 Brisbane Roar 2: Mariners pay the penalty
Second-half penalties from Jean Carlos Solorzano and Andrija Kaluderovic earned Brisbane Roar a third A-League win on the bounce as they beat Central Coast Mariners 2-0 on Friday.
Eddy Bosnar's handball led to the first spot-kick, which was duly converted by Solzarno for his fifth of the season.
Kaluderovic came on as Solzarno's replacement in the 77th minute and netted a penalty of his own in stoppage time after Thomas Broich had been fouled.
Both sides still retain hope of achieving a top-six finish to extend their respective campaigns.
