Sarota seeking glorious finish

Brisbane Roar youngster Adam Sarota has admitted the squad are fired up to end their season on a high when it travels west to face the finals bound Perth Glory next Saturday.

Brisbane Roar youngster Adam Sarota has admitted the squad are fired up to end their season on a high when it travels west to face the finals bound Perth Glory next Saturday.

The club-s slim hopes of a barn-storming top six finish were extinguished by Adelaide United last round, leaving little to fight for in the final game of the season.

However, Sarota said the players were using the disappointment of their season exit as motivation against the Glory.

“We were pretty disappointed we lost to Adelaide,” the 21 year-old said.

“(And) it-s the last game of the season so hopefully we can end it with a win.”

Making his Roar debut just over a year ago (versus Newcastle Jets in November 2008), the former Pine Rivers junior has established himself as a regular first team contender in season 2009/10.

Racking up 12 appearances (nine starts), one assist and seven shots on goal, the adaptable Sarota has played nearly every position across the middle of the park.

Despite his solid breakthrough year, Sarota believes he has a long way to go before he can claim himself as the finished article.

“I-ve made a couple of starts this year, but hopefully I can just get better and better,” Sarota said.

“I wasn-t happy with my performance last week, so hopefully against Perth it becomes better.”

Perth is guaranteed finals football for the first time since the inception of the A-League, but with the race to fourth position too close to call, the Glory will be out for all three points against the Roar.

However, with the Roar looking for a positive finish to their turbulent season, Sarota expects an old fashioned stand-off in the Wild West.

“Our goal is to win the last game of the season, because that-s all we have left to fight for,” Sarota said.

“We-re defiantly going to be putting the effort in, not just going through the motions.

“We-re definitely going out there not to lose.”
