Phoenix lose at home to Roar

6:59 pm on 12 February 2012

The Wellington Phoenix footballers have been beaten 2-0 at home by the A-League champions the Brisbane Roar.

Besart Berisha got the opener with a well-taken volley from a suspiciously offside position then Mitch Nichols got the second from the edge of the area with about 10 minutes left on the clock, hitting the top corner with an impressive finish.

The result sees the Roar leapfrog the Phoenix into second spot on the table.

Just over 13,000 fans turned up on a sunny day in the capital.
