CROWD favourite Henrique provided yet another magical moment for the Brisbane Roar faithful, scoring the winning goal in his team's 1-0 win over Perth at Suncorp Stadium.

It was Henrique's first game back in seven months following a knee reconstruction, and the "Slippery Fish" was moved to tears in front of his adoring fans after scoring.

The super-sub found the back of the net after a flick from Javier Hervas, the Spanish recruit coming up with a goal assist in his first minute of A-League action.

After a harrowing and long injury recovery period, Henrique made sure he lapped up his 32nd A-League goal, beating Alex Grant to the ball with an outstretched leg in the 74th minute.

Despite being without captain Matt McKay, Jamie Maclaren and Corey Brown, who were all on Australian duty, the Roar dominated for much of the contest, with nine attempts on goal to one in the first half.

Dimitri Petratos could have scored on two occasions, hitting the post with sweetly-timed shots in the 26th and 88th minutes.

The Glory's best chace came right on halftime, when defender Marc Warren's first touch let him down in front of goal, from a Guyon Fernandez cross.

Roar midfielder Thomas Broich copped a heavy boot to his knee from Glory forward Diego Castro right on fulltime, but coach John Aloisi was hopeful it was only a minor wound.
