Queensland complete toughest task in A-League football

The Queensland Roar has scored two late goals to overcome the league leaders in Round 6 of A-League action. An away win over the Melbourne Victory at the Telstra Dome is considered to be one of the toughest tasks in the national league and to do it coming off a home loss is a monumental effort. Goals in the last ten minutes from youngsters Tahj Minniecon and Michael Zullo secured the three points for the Roar and coach Frank Farina was pleased with his players. "I've told the players over the past few weeks, if we continue to play in the manner we have been playing, things will turn. Tonight was the night that it turned for us. The two guys (Minniecon and Zullo) took the goals well. "From our perspective it would have been a travesty if we didn't get the three points," Farina said after the game. With two wins, two draws and two losses, the Roar now find themselves just three points off the lead as they head to Sydney for what is shaping to be a blockbuster in Round 7, whereas Melbourne host the lowly Perth Glory in a bid to bounce back to form.
