Table Toppers Out To Avoid A Tumble
Sydney sit at the summit of the A-League standings with ten points – after following up their opening 1-1 home draw against Melbourne City with successive wins over Newcastle Jets, Western Sydney and Central Coast in their last three games. The Sky Blues have only conceded two goals in those four games, with the solid defence base of Matt Jurman and Jacques Faty allowing the home side to register two clean sheets already this season.
Brisbane also registered wins over Western Sydney and Central Coast in their first two games, but were left ruing a 2-3 loss to Wellington. After getting back to winning ways with an emphatic 3-0 win over Adelaide United, Roar will hope to register back-to-back wins once again, claiming the three points they need to overtake Sydney and stealing top spot for their own.
With Jamie Maclaren and Brandon Borrello spearheading the Brisbane attack and inspiring them to register ten goals already for the season, this A-League clash on Friday November 6 will surely be a classic case of attack versus defence – as Sydney’s miserly defence try to keep out the league’s top scorers in this 19:47 kick-off.Discussing his forthcoming battle with Brisbane’s front-line, Sydney defender Jurman told the Sydney Morning Herald: “Brisbane are playing well, they’re scoring goals and looking sharp.
“I don’t think we’ve been playing as well as we can but we’re getting results. That’s a positive thing when you’re not playing at your best.
“Hopefully we get a big crowd and it’s going to be a big test, especially for those of us at the back to keep their forward line quiet.
“When I was at Brisbane, Brandon was in the youth team and you could see back then how much potential he had. It’s good to see him go on with that but, hopefully, we can keep him quiet on Friday.”
Jurman was one of seven players to find the net the last time Sydney FC hosted Brisbane Roar back in March – as Marc Janko’s hat-trick helped the hosts to edge a nine-goal thriller 5-4, with five goals being scored in the a manic final 15 minutes.
