Adelaide United vs Brisbane Roar Live. ADELAIDE Young trainer Marco Kurz fears an ambush by Brisbane Roar at Coopers Stadium on Saturday. Much of the attention in recent weeks has been due to the shocking trauma of Ron, who has contributed to the only two of his 12 Brisbane games this season.
Fans of French star forward Eric Baueka (femoral biceps), Brett Holman store (calf), defenders Jade North (groin) and Daniel Bowles (hamstring), linebacker Joe butt (leg) and Ivan Frandzhich utility (ATV) were injured in the time that former Greek international Abraham Papadopoulos remains suspended.
However, Kurz will not let his players get into the trap of underestimating the Brisbane side, which featured Italian shooter Massimo Maccarone, who scored six goals this season, including three in the last four Brisbane games.
“We are wrong when we talk about injuries to Brisbane,” said Kurz.
“It’s very important to talk about the strengths of this team, they lost games, but very close games.
“It’s a good team”. At Maccarone they have a very good forward, and for us it is very important to focus on this game tomorrow.
“If we make a mistake, we believe that this is a simple game, of what we lost.”
Roaring coach John Aloisi also chose to focus on players who had been available, including teen prodigy Rahmat Akbari, not the ones on the sidelines.The offensive midfielder Akbari – the opportunity to start his first start of the current A-Lee today as a substitute for the injured Nick D’Agostino (ankle).
“I want to see the positive and see the players who will play,” said Aloisi.
“You do not need to be afraid, you have experienced players around you who can help you with this.”
