Brisbane Roar’s A-League Women team have now started the new season with three losses from three games.

But with each loss, the Roar are becoming hungrier for their first win of the season and they are eager to “smash” Canberra United next time out.

Brisbane played out an action-packed game against Melbourne Victory on Saturday in a top vs bottom matchup.

The match seemed to be as if it was the top two teams of the league battling it out. The final score ended up 3-2 in Melbourne’s favour, but Brisbane played a phenomenal game.

The Roar played as if they were the top-of-the-table team, and it seemed like their players felt that way also.

Brisbane forward Shea Connors expressed her frustration on their current winless season post-match.

“It’s just so frustrating because we didn’t even play a bad game,” she said.

“I felt like we were the stronger team for the majority of the time in today’s game and our other games. But it’s just like the minor lapses in play that’s costing us games.”

The losses have undoubtedly fuelled Connors’ and Roar’s motivation to secure that first win.

With Brisbane’s next match-up set to be against bottom of the table team Canberra United, the Roar are hungrier than ever to get those three points and Connors didn’t hold back.

“We want to smash them at this point,” she said.

“We’re going to go hard because three losses are not who we want to be.”

Connors’ motivation to “smash” their opponents are backed by head coach Garrath McPherson, and the whole Brisbane squad seems to be on the same page.

“We’re not going into the game looking at the losses,” Connors said.

“We’re just looking at the next game. Because like I said, I think we are a dangerous team, and we can get the W eventually.”
