This Sunday IS serious business for the Roar.
After a disappointing season last year Brisbane’s strong start to 2010 has surprised many.
The Roar coach says a change in attitude is turning the team around.
Ange Postecoglou, Roar Head Coach: “They’re very confident at the moment they’re comfortable in the way they’re playing. I think it suits the players we’ve got and the way they play. Because of that they’re feeling very comfortable going into games.”
But players aren’t getting ahead of themselves.
Michael Theoklitos: “I think we’ve got a long way to improve. We’ve shown good signs definitiely but yeah there’s a lot of room for improvement.”
Former Melbourne Victory keeper, Michael Theoklitos is excited about going up against his old side.
Michael Theoklitos, Roar Keeper: “They’re a quality team, especially at home with the support they have, it’s gonna be very tough to break them down but we’ve just got to concentrate on the style of play we play and hopefully come back with a result.”
Veteran midfielder Massimo Murdocca trained strongly, shaking off a leg injury that’s limited his game time this season.
The Roar will be pulling out all the stops as the team hasn’t beaten Melbourne since 2008.
