Callum McManaman’s brilliant strike canceled Scott McDonald’s opener at AAMI Park before Nick Ansell hit the post for Victory

Brisbane enjoyed the better half of the second half, claiming victory with a header from Macaulay Gillesphey and a goal from Dylan Wenzel-Halls

Four players – McManaman, Jacob Butterfield, Ben Folami and Rudy Gestede – made their A-League debuts in the new Victory

The attacker took possession of the right wing before cutting inwards and shooting a brilliant blow into the farthest corner from 20 meters

The win took the lead just before the break Ansell hit the post with a header from a Brimmer corner while McManaman made another attempt

Gestede made his Victory debut from the bench after the second half started slower

However, Brisbane went through Gillesphey, who walked into a Corey Brown corner on the hour

Wenzel-Halls shot in the 62 Minute one shot for the Roar before McManaman shot a 20-yard hit over the bar

about his goal …
“Definitely, but still very disappointed that we didn’t get anything out of the game. It’s really a small consolation”

because of a lack of match practice …
“I thought we were the better team in the first half but we have to go back next week and make it up to me””

about his experiences in the AAMI Park …
“It was good to play in front of an audience again. I especially enjoyed the first half and I’m looking forward to playing here again”
