‘I’m not going to look at excuses or decisions’: Moon critical of Roar, not the referee

-

In a game that was defined by contentious penalty calls, but ultimately controlled by one team, Brisbane Roar’s coach isn’t giving his side a cop out for their lacklustre display.

After their 2-1 defeat to Central Coast Mariners, Warren Moon’s men are in the unenvious position of having just claimed one victory from their nine most recent games.

While Friday’s contest at Kayo Stadium saw a penalty decision gift the Mariners the decisive lead, Moon refused to blame the referees judgement post-game.

“We’ve lost the game at home, we haven’t picked up points and I’m not going to look at excuses or decisions,” Moon said post-match.

Roar have been on the wrong end of the VAR stick in consecutive weeks.

Last Friday it was Carlo Armiento’s denied corner goal that took away Brisbane’s lead, while Friday’s referee intervention continued the hard luck for the men in orange.

“Decisions have been made over the last few weeks and we have to cop it,” Moon said.

“We have to find ways and solutions to overcome those moments and we didn’t tonight.

The match was primarily controlled by the Gosford-based side.

Central Coast created more chances, possessed the ball more frequently and looked the dominant team throughout the 90 minutes of play, admitted Moon.

“We weren’t good enough. In the first half we had a couple of moments, couple of spells, but again it wasn’t good enough overall and the decisions are the decisions, we have to find ways around that.”

Never one to lambaste his own side, Moon was adamant that Brisbane have the internal fortitude to turn their form around in the final phase of the 2022/23 season.

“It’s the beauty of elite football, it tests you,” Moon said.

“We can roll over and accept that the challenge becomes tougher or we can try and find our way back into the six.”
