The Wanderers head into Friday’s match against the Jets ready to face some of their demons, returning after another frustrating finish in Brisbane.

Babbel’s men appeared destined to emerge victorious in what was a likely fight for survival in this season’s final series race until a late lapse in attention earned Brisbane Roar a corner kick in the dying embers.

This saw Adam Taggart rise highest and plant an unstoppable e ort past the Wanderers gloveman to keep the Roar’s top-six aspirations hanging on by a thread, cancelling out two spectacular goals by Roly Bonevacia and Kwame Yeboah.

Outside of ex-club Phoenix, Brisbane were the only Hyundai A-League team against whom Bonevacia had failed to score prior to kick-off. But the 27-year-old needed just 18 minutes to buck that trend when he latched onto Brendan Hamill’s ball over the top and lashed a fierce strike at the near post.

That sparked Markus Babbel’s side to play with a confident swagger, encapsulated by the lovely piece of striking play from Yeboah which doubled the Wanderers’ lead on the cusp of half-time.

With three points in their hand, a late heist during injury time left Babbel and the Wanderers floored by a late capitulation, forcing them to search for redemption once more on Friday night.

Similarly, the Jets head into the match with their own sets of frustrations having been unable to secure any points against league leaders Perth Glory on Sunday night.

Goals by Andy Keogh and Neil Kilkenny on either side of the half established an unassailable two-goal buffer, with the Jets struggling to get anything out of the match.

The last time the Wanderers and the Jets met was back in Round 5 of the Hyundai A-League competition, with the Jets the runaway winners in a 2-0 victory at Spotless Stadium.

Goals by Jason Hoffman and Ronald Vargas secured the three points for the visitors who will no doubt be looking to replicate that result to kickstart their run to the finals series.

With the Wanderers breathing down their necks on the ladder, it’s no doubt that the Red & Black will too be looking for redemption, from their previous meeting and result results, to give any hope of their chance in finals series a boost this season
