SYDNEY (AP) - Brisbane’s Henrique scored the winning goal in the 88th minute Saturday in a 3-2 victory over Sydney FC to move the Roar into first place in the A-League, two points ahead of Western Sydney with two rounds to play in the regular season.

Filip Holosko’s second goal of the game for Sydney pulled the visitors level a minute ahead of Henrique’s winner.

The result left only four points separating the top five teams.

Earlier Saturday, Andy Keogh scored an 88th-minute penalty - his seventh goal in seven matches to tie an A-League record - as the Perth Glory beat the Newcastle Jets 2-1.

Perth is level in fourth place with Adelaide on 40 points. The Glory are nine points ahead of seventh-place Sydney, with the top six teams making the finals series.

On Sunday, Adelaide plays Central Coast. On Monday, third-place Melbourne City plays Wellington to close out the 25th round.
