Brisbane Roar have continued their winless run in the Asian Champions League by drawing 1-1 with Ulsan Hyundai on Wednesday.

Brisbane Roar have continued their winless run in the Asian Champions League by drawing 1-1 with Ulsan Hyundai on Wednesday.

The reigning A-League champions scored first through Nick Fitzgerald who coolly slotted home Besart Berisha’s clever lay-off in the 36th minute before Roar defender Matthew Jurman was sent off a minute into the second half for bringing down Kin Seung-yong in the area.

Brisbane keeper Michael Theoklitos saved the ensuing penalty from Lee Keun-ho but Ulsan did manage to equalise in the 55th minute when Lee Jae-sung netted from Juan Velez’s cross to grab a point for the home side.

Roar coach Ange Postecoglou was happy with his side’s showing as the Roar remain at the bottom of the Group F table on just two points, equal with Beijing Guoan, and three behind Tokyo FC and Ulsan.

"I am very satisfied because even though we had a player sent-off, we played well," said Postecoglou.

"At half-time I felt that we were in a good position to take all three points, but the red card was disappointing.

"But we were able to defend well and I am satisfied with the draw."
