Phoenix draw in Brisbane

2:37 pm on 24 August 2009

The Wellington Phoenix have come behind to draw 1-1 with the Roar in Brisbane in round three of football's A-League.

It's the first A-League point the Phoenix have scored in Brisbane and they were unlucky not to have taken all three.

Striker Chris Greenacre's 85th-minute headed goal secured the valuable competition point in a match the Phoenix dominated after a slow first quarter where the Roar were able to take an early lead through Sergio van Dijk.

The Roar finished with 10 men after substitute Tommy Oar was marched for a second yellow card late in the match, and the home side's coach Frank Farina was also ejected as the clock wound down.

The Phoenix now have four points, with a one win, one draw and one loss. Their next match is away to Sydney United on August 30.
