The Brisbane Roar Youth travels to Sydney this week looking to take their unbeaten streak to 7 games when they take on Sydney FC at Campbelltown Stadium on Sunday.

After seeing off a fast-finishing Melbourne Victory side 2-1, following strikes from Jacob McLean and Christopher Bush, second placed Brisbane now face a new challenge in a Sydney FC side buoyed after their first win of the season.

Head coach John Sime was extremely happy with the way his side-s performances have improved over the past few weeks, saying that their efforts at training are beginning to show.

“We are really starting to get it all together, our performances have been good. We have started to get our passing right and ball movement has been of a high quality; I have been impressed with how the boys are going,” Sime said.

“We have set ourselves a platform now considering our performance against Melbourne, and now coming up against Sydney it is up to the boys to keep putting in quality performances.”

The match will be the second time Brisbane has played Sydney this season, following their round one fixture at home, where both sides shared the points after an exciting 3-3 draw.

Sime is confident his team can secure a result away from home, putting it down to his side-s ability to perform against big name opposition.

“Melbourne and Sydney are two of the biggest clubs in the A-league and always put out a competitive side, as was evident with Melbourne-s late comeback on Sunday and Sydney-s win against Perth,” Sime said.

“We managed to get the win at home against Melbourne however we have to play Sydney in Sydney; our boys are looking forward to it and are ready to go. “

While looking forward to starting the Roar Youth side-s run of away games with a win, Sime said that he would be content if his side kept putting in quality performances

“If they put in the performances they have been starting to show I will be happy. Even if we don-t get the result and the boys put in a great performance I would be happy with the effort they are putting in, however if you put in really great performances results have tend to go your way,” he said.
