Aloisi refusing to get down as Brisbane Roar slump continues

-

Brisbane Roar head coach John Aloisi is convinced his side can recover after they were defeated 4-1 by Adelaide United; their third game straight without a win.

Bruce Djite led the way with a brace in the second half, his first time finding the net in almost 24 hours of playing time, meaning Brisbane have conceded eight goals in just two weeks.

Aloisi said the results aren’t reflecting the way his team have been performing over the past three weeks and silly mistakes have cost them dearly.

“Teams aren’t outplaying us. They’re not dominating us,” he said.

“We’re getting punished at the moment and maybe three weeks ago we weren’t getting punished.

“We have to make sure we cut out those errors and defend better.

The club’s future was in doubt before the season had even begun and Aloisi said those experiences mean his players know they’ll have to haul themselves out of a rough patch.

“I’ve got no doubt my players will come back. They’ve had major hurdles in preseason,” he said.

“Where we’ve come from is amazing so I’ve got no problems with my players overcoming this little hurdle.

“We’re top of the table and no one expects you to lose like that but this team right here has a lot of character.

“We’ll get through this period because we’ve got winners in this side.

Brisbane dominated possession but struggled to create anything clear cut in the first half and Aloisi believed their fear of taking risks cost them.

“We lacked that bit of spark in the first half,” he said.

“I thought that when we were beating lines, we were turning back out and making it easy to defend.”

Aloisi was especially disappointed that his team let their opponents back into the game immediately after they drew level after the half time break.

“The second half we started off well and we were positive,” he said.

“And then to give a goal like that straight after…

“I actually thought after we scored the goal we were going to run all over them but then we gave away a silly goal and it ends up changing the dynamic of the game.”

Aloisi refused to make any excuses, even with top goalscorer Jamie Maclaren away on Olyroos duty.

“If you take six players out of any side they are going to find it hard. But again no excuse because I think the players out there tonight are still good enough to go and get a result,” he said.

“One individual is not the reason why we’ve lost two games. That’s not it.”
