In-form goalkeeper Jamie Young says Brisbane’s Hyundai A-League squad believe they can be successful in season 2017/18.
Young has anchored a defence which has kept two consecutive clean sheets and he says a few more positive results is all the Roar need to be back among the top sides on the ladder.
“It’s certainly not down to me, it has been a great whole-team contribution to keep clean sheets in the last two games,” Young said.
“In this league, if you get a good burst of form you can quickly improve your placing on the ladder. We’re slowly doing that and we have to believe in ourselves. A couple of good results and we are right back up there.
“We’re travelling under the radar at the moment and there’s no reason we can’t be up there again this season.”
Brisbane has lost just one of its last seven Hyundai A-League matches and return to Suncorp Stadium this Sunday for the first time in a month.
John Aloisi's men will be looking to consolidate their spot in the top six when they take on Melbourne Victory, a side desperate to find form of their own and with whom Brisbane has shared an intense rivalry with in recent seasons.
The last match at Suncorp Stadium brought about the Roar’s maiden win for the season against the Victory’s cross-town rivals and Young says making Suncorp Stadium a place to be feared by opposition sides is a key priority.
“We’ve had a great rivalry over the years with the Victory and I’m sure this weekend will be no different,” Young added.
“We’ve had a few tough games away from Suncorp Stadium but now we’re back and we’ll be looking to capitalise.
“There is that fortress feeling about the stadium and we want to take advantage of that.”
