Young Roar defending home record

The Young Roar return to Foxtel Y-League action on Saturday morning, hosting Perth Glory at Richlands’ Lions FC Stadium (10:30am KO).

Brisbane come into the clash seeking to get one back over Perth after a 2-1 loss out west back in Round 1. 

Head Coach Drew Sherman is confident his side is well prepared to face Perth after a strong showing last time against the Glory. 

“We know a little bit about them and we are prepared and know the way they play,” Sherman said. 

“We went over there and lost the first game, but it was a little bit unfortunate to be honest. We believe the result wasn't a fair reflection of how we performed in that match.”

With the Foxtel Y-League season a month in, Sherman realises this Saturday’s clash will act as a measuring stick into his side’s improvement. 

“It will be interesting to see how we go and whether we’ve shown improvement since Round One,” Sherman added. 

After Perth got the two-goal jump in the last meeting, Brisbane went on to dominate possession throughout the second half and find the target, eventually slicing the margin in half through defender Emlyn Wellsmore.

Brisbane remain unbeaten at home this season and will fancy their chances this week with both sides locked on four points. 

“We are unbeaten up here,” Sherman continued.

“We will be back at Lions FC Stadium this weekend where we beat Melbourne City in Round 2, so we are hoping we can win again on Saturday.”

A win for Brisbane could see them catapult into the top 2 of Conference A.

With both sides splitting meetings against each other the past three years, history is on the Roar’s side.
