Looking to end a disappointing run of two losses and regain top spot on the National Youth League ladder, Brisbane Roar Youth will be giving it their all when they take on Sydney FC Youth in Wollongong on Saturday.

The Roar are still disappointed by their shock 4-1 drumming by Sydney in round six and are driven to reverse the result in what is the final fixture for Brisbane until January.

Brisbane Roar Head Coach John Sime was adamant that his side would be inspired to put in a big performance, but wanted his players to focus on their own game foremost.

“While the boys were very disappointed with the 4-1 loss down in Sydney a few weeks back, we have to focus on putting in our best possible performance,” Sime said.

“I have told the players all season that if they can give a great all around team performance the results will follow and I believe that if the boys play to their best they will get the win on Saturday.”

Since their last meeting Brisbane has gone on to win three of the past five, however Sydney has struggled through a long break in their schedule losing the three games since their clash with the Roar.

Sime believes that Sydney-s recent struggles and position on the bottom of the table will not mean an easy match and is something his players have learned after their 2-1 loss to Adelaide a fortnight ago.

“The loss to Adelaide was a lesson to the boys to not take anybody lightly,” said Sime.

“Sydney is a side that you must be on your best performance against or you will not get the result, they are one of the biggest clubs in the country and are always up for a tough match.”

Keen to get his side back on track after a difficult fortnight of results, Sime wants his players to put in one last effort before their three week break.

“Last week the boys played the best they have played all season and it was really unfortunate for them that they didn-t get the result, I have stressed to them this week that they need to keep their head up and give it their all,” Sime said.

“Sydney will be in for a very tough encounter.”
