Brisbane Roar Preview – Fowler reaping benefits of move Down Under?

By all accounts, Robbie Fowler has taken to his new role Down Under as Brisbane Roar (4th – W9 D5 L7) head coach with ease. In only his first full term at the helm the former Liverpool idol already has the club well-placed in fourth, five points clear of the team in seventh and thus in a very strong position to qualify for the Final Series, which is due to get underway at the start of April.

For some context into what Fowler and his backroom staff have achieved thus far, The Roar endured a torrid 2018-19 A-League campaign in which the team would miss out on the Final Series by a staggering 22-points, finishing second bottom during the regular season. If anything, then, this group of players appear to only be getting better over time under the present regime.

After a slow start to the current term, Brisbane Roar have embarked on a run of seven wins in their past twelve matches, losing only twice. Victory this Friday, meanwhile, would represent their longest winning sequence of the season, having recently beaten both Western Sydney (3-1) and Central Coast (1-0). Both were at home, where they remain unbeaten in six, winning four, since a 2-0 loss to Western United in early December.


Newcastle Jets & Both To Score



Newcastle Jets Preview – Jets still to lose under new manager?

Possibly one of the least surprising aspects of this season’s A-League has been the struggles of Newcastle Jets (9th – W6 D6 L9), who frequently come up short during the regular season and have left themselves with a mountain to climb if they are to partake in the end-of-season Final Series. However, recent results suggest a late-season revival is in progress.

Since 2011, the club have featured in the Final Series on a single occasion. They are, quite frankly, the perennial underachievers. Manager Carl Robinson, whose playing career involved stints in England with Portsmouth, Norwich and Sunderland, was installed in February to revive their ailing fortunes. On that front, his appointment has been an unmitigated success.

The Jets are still to taste defeat under new management, going six unbeaten (W3 D3) since the start of February to move back within six points of the top-six. Confidence will have soared following last week’s emphatic success away to Adelaide United, with a 3-0 scoreline marking their biggest margin of victory of the season but also just their second triumph away from home of the campaign (W2 D2 L6).
