Wellington 3 v Brisbane 1

Brisbane made the early running. And Van Dijk and Reinaldo both lacked composure to miss clear cut opportunities. To be fair to Ange, once Henrique did his hamstring he was going to be very reliant on returning Socceroos Matt McKay and Tommy Oar. McKay as new Roar Captain occasionally looked very good. But both were obviously tired.

The team really lacks consistent skill and experience. Going back to the quality of season one is really asking a lot of even loyal fans. The bench looked very thin. Both Packer and Mitch Nichols seem to have been dropped altogether.

The defence still is prone to panic and looking a mess. Van Dijk scored in the 88th to make it look better.
