Melbourne Victory handed boss Ange Postecoglou a winning send-off as they edged out Brisbane Roar at Etihad Stadium on Friday.

Football News: Ange Postecoglou

Postecoglou was named as new Australia coach this week and will take up his new role on a high after James Troisi's goal proved enough for the Victory to consign Brisbane to their first defeat of the season.

Troisi outpaced Matt Smith before firing left-footed through the legs of Roar goalkeeper Michael Theo after 56 minutes to settle a hard-fought encounter.

It was the first time Postecoglou had beaten the Roar since leaving them in April last year after guiding them to successive A-League titles.

Brisbane remain top for now but may be overtaken over the rest of the round three weekend.
