With tickets more affordable than ever, Brisbane Roar captain Craig Moore has called on fans to show up in their numbers to Suncorp Stadium on Friday night to help the team get back on track against the Newcastle Jets.

Fans can get tickets from as little as $15 for adults for this match and the rest of the season, following the introduction of the Corner Kick Tix seating category this week.

The Roar are looking to end a run of defeats and haul themselves back into the top six and Moore indicated strong support from the stands would be repaid by the team on the pitch.

“After four straight defeats it-s very important to get a win and Friday night would be a great time for that,” the Socceroo centre back said.

“Hopefully we can also pull in a crowd as well, because (the last few results haven-t) been ideal.

“Hopefully we can get some support and we can show them a good game, but to get the three points as well I think is really important.”

Despite the recent run of results, Moore said there is still plenty of belief within the club that the team will be at the right end of the table come the end of the season.

“Nobody within this club is talking about anything but getting out of this situation,” he said.

“There-s still plenty of time for that to happen, but Friday night, first and foremost, is a very important game for us that we really need to win to get us lifted and to start building from.”

After sitting out last week-s match through suspension, the inspirational skipper said he was looking forward to helping the team continue to push in the right direction on Friday.

“I thought for the whole of the game (against Sydney) the team that played competed extremely well and were very unfortunate not to come away with anything at the end,” he said.

“So it-s not all doom and gloom. The work rate and the effort that the boys put in is what the new coach wanted to see and he got that in abundance. Now it-s about getting results.

“We-ve not fielded our strongest team for a long time and we-re still all extremely confident.

“We-ve seen the league this season, if you can go three or four games - wins especially - then you-re right back in the mix.”

Friday-s match between Brisbane Roar and the Newcastle Jets kicks off at 7.30 AEST. Tickets are available from Ticketek, click here for details.
