Wellington Phoenix vs Brisbane Roar
Australia – A-League
Date: Sunday, 25 March 2018
Kick-Off at 07:00 UK
Venue: Westpac Stadium (Wellington).
Brisbane Roar look to have caught the wanted rhythm at just about right time as two straight wins have brought them just two points adrift of the playoffs spots ahead of the weekend’s trip to New Zealand. The clash with the rock-bottomed Wellington Phoenix will provide a fantastic opportunity for the Roar to maintain the splendid run of form and make it three wins on the bounce to stay in the contest for the top six finish at the end of the regular season in A-League.
The head coach John Aloisi can particularly be proud of his team’s display from seven days ago when Brisbane have stunned the runaway leaders Sydney 1-2 on the road. Matt McKay and Jacob Pepper bagged two early goals within the opening 20 minutes of the match to shock the reigning champions who have rarely dropped points in front of their crowd in this term of the competition.
The Roar have thus made it five wins in last six games away from home and everything suggests the continuation of such trend given they are up against the outfit which has lost six of last seven affairs in A-League. The demolishing 4-1 defeat away at Western Sydney Wanderers forced the owners to finally part ways with the Bosnian manager Darije Kalezic. Nonetheless, the new man on the bench, Chris Greenacre, got off to a poor start of his reign at Westpac Stadium losing the last weekend’s home clash with Newcastle Jets 0-1.
