Resolute Roar not eager to be ‘jam-packed full of stars’

-

In the 2022/23 season so far, Brisbane Roar have continued to fly under the A-League Men radar.

Should they win against Western United on Friday night, the gutsy men in orange will find themselves entrenched in the top six.

For a side that has already lost their marquee recruit in Charlie Austin, and scored the equal fewest goals in the league, that potential ladder position is no mean feat.

Nor is it a fluke, according to head coach Warren Moon.

“We’re not jam-packed full of stars, but what we are is accountable and a side that works for each other,” Moon said at a Thursday press conference.

Accountability has flourished into a defence that has conceded the same amount of goals as the best team in the land – Melbourne City.

Moon stressed Brisbane’s appetite to deny the opposition is born out of an ingrained culture at the club.

“It’s a good a collective spirit that we have and the boys turn up every week to make sure we’re hard to beat, it’s a great mindset to have,” he said.

There is little doubting the Roar will turn up with that mindset this Friday night, against a team that Brisbane characterise as the complete opposite to themselves.

Fresh off two consecutive victories, last season’s A-League Men champions Western United, is the next test for the Roar’s dogged, ruthless game style.

Whereas Moon’s humble posse of battlers are not ‘stars’, United are apparently brimming with them.

“No surprises for us, we know they’re a very good team jam-packed with quality stars,” Moon said.

The Roar coach is happy to position his men, despite being higher on the ladder than their opposition, as the underdogs up against world beaters.

“It was obviously the start they didn’t want but I don’t think anyone ever thought that they weren’t going to turn it around or rediscover their form and be a side that’s going to threaten the top six this year,” he said.

Brisbane’s ability to remain low key will only be challenged should they continue to scrap their way to strong performances against dangerous sides.

They now have another chance to do just that against United on Friday in Melbourne.

While the polish may not yet be there, Roar do not lack any determination or commitment to the cause so far in this more than admirable season.
