VIDEO: Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler scores for Fury in Brisbane draw

North Queensland Fury 1 – Brisbane Roar 1 (A-League, September 5, 2009) The Fury needed just seven minutes to break the deadlock, Robbie Fowler rolled back the years to produce a brilliant first touch to kill a Robinson cross in a crowded Brisbane area and coolly slotting a shot into the near post. The Fury went down to 10-men when Paul Kohler was sent off for his second yellow card after 30 minutes, and at the death Roar striker Sergio van Dijk popped up to claim an equaliser.

Gold Coast United 2 – Sydney FC 1 (A-League, September 5, 2009) Shane Smeltz scored either side of half-time as the Coast climbed back to the top of the standings and inflicted upon the visitors their first defeat of the campaign. A late header to Steve Corica the best Sydney could muster in reply.
