It was a perfect start for the A-League’s newest franchise, who got the win over a credible Wellington Phoenix outfit. Fittingly, it was one of the league’s greatest ever marksmen in Besart Berisha who netted the franchise’s first goal.
Perth looked to have it all sewn up in the nation’s west until Brisbane slotted a contentious, though ultimately legal goal in the final throws of the match. They will undoubtedly feel like they should be carrying winning form into this contest and will be eager to respond with three competition points. I think they will.
