Young gun Dylan Wenzel-Halls came off the bench to secure the Brisbane Roar a 1-0 A-League win over Wellington Phoenix at a rain-lashed Suncorp Stadium.
The 22-year-old forward, who hadn't featured for the Roar since mid-December, made the most of his second-half substitute's appearance to score the only goal of Saturday's game in the 69th minute.
Wenzel-Hall's strike extends Brisbane's unbeaten run to four games, and moves them up to seventh on the ladder, just a point outside the top six.

To this point, it appears the competition this season is broken up into three tiers, as reflected by the ladder: Sydney, Melbourne City to Adelaide United, then the rest. It's the A-League, though, so anything can happen between now and the time the Toilet Seat is lifted in triumph.
