The Roar are looking to cement second spot on the ladder tomorrow night against the third placed Mariners.
Coach Ange Postecoglou is expecting a physical challenge from the visitors.
Ange Postecoglou, Brisbane Roar Coach: “You know they’re a good side and they’ll be a great challenge for us but every week is you know, and there aren’t any easy games but certainly we’re preparing for a tough one tomorrow.”
Facing three games in seven days, the Roar will back up after Saturday night’s drawn game at Suncorp.
Luke DeVere, Brisbane Roar Player: “I think most of the boys will pull up alright it was obviously a bit of a frustrating game on Saturday but the bodies pulled up and we’re ready to go for tomorrow night.”
The Roar were dominant everywhere but the scoreboard last Saturday night.
The game was looking like it would go the Jets way until Reinaldo managed to score the only goal for the Roar late in the second half.
Players were today facing a light training session instead of the usual heavy mid-week session.
The last time these two sides met, the Roar thrashed the Mariners three nil; now with the Roar two dollar ten favourites they’re set to re-create some of that magic.
Although the hectic schedule will be tiring for the players, the Roar are taking it in their stride.
Ange Postecoglou, Brisbane Roar Coach: “It is a little bit unusual thing having to back up again so we’ll see how they go tomorrow night, but I’m super confident the start of the game they’ll be alright.”
Luke DeVere, Brisbane Roar Player: “Every footballer like to play games so the three games in a week, whilst it’s challenging it’s enjoyable and all the boys are ready for it.”
Kick off tomorrow night is at 7pm.
