Brisbane Roars coach Ryan Nelsen says the Brisbane Roaring Tigers’ chances of a first home win since they defeated the Sydney FC in round four will hinge on whether they can put a winning performance into their game against the Western Sydney Wanderers.
The Roar beat the Wanderers in their home debut in Brisbane, but they’ve played better and will be hoping to put the momentum behind them at the Allianz Stadium.
“We’ll be looking to be a bit more aggressive,” Nelsen said.
“The way we play, we’re a little bit more defensive, we’ll look to be more aggressive in front of goal, and we’ll need to work on the penalty area and how we handle those situations.”
I think if we do that, then hopefully we’ll be able to get that result.
“If we do get a result, then we’ll have put that momentum behind us.”
Roar coach Ryan Nelson says the Roaring the Tigers’ chance of a home win over Sydney FC will hinge upon whether they are more aggressive at the penalty spot.
The Australian Rugby Union has suspended two players for a series of breaches of discipline after a clash between the two sides at Allianzo Stadium in March.
Nelson says the suspension should not impact Roar players, and that he’ll use the Roar’s first game in Sydney to prepare for Saturday’s clash with the Wanders.
“It’s a big game for us,” he said.
“We’ll just be looking forward to seeing what happens.”
“It was a very exciting game and it was a really good win for us and we were very pleased to come away with that win.”
The Roars will return to action against Sydney FC on Saturday (AEST) after they played the Wanderer in their first home match of the season.
