The first A-League game of 2020 saw Brisbane Roar produce an impressive comeback to beat Western Sydney Wanderers.

Brisbane Roar came from behind to defeat Western Sydney Wanderers 2-1 for only their third win of the A-League season.

Robbie Fowler's side started Wednesday with only goal difference keeping them above bottom-of-the-table Newcastle Jets and their struggles looked set to continue when captain Mitchell Duke gave hosts Wanderers a fifth-minute lead.

But Brisbane battled back as Scott Neville headed in after 20 minutes, while Bradden Inman scored for the second straight game, impressively finding the bottom corner from outside of the area to cap a superb team move just after the hour mark that completed the turnaround.

Wanderers, now four home games without a win, missed the chance to move into the top five after an outing that saw them hit the target with just three of their 18 attempts on goal.
