IN THE weeks since the Wanderers last met Brisbane, it’s been a difficult time for myself and both clubs.
Brisbane have had three losses before beating the Phoenix last weekend, while we’ve spoken a lot about the work we’ve done to find winning form again.
It was great to be out there again after suspension, it felt like I hadn’t missed any time at all and it was a fantastic moment to hear the applause from the Wanderers supporters against Newcastle when I came on.
It’s such a big lift, so now is the time to repay them with some winning performances. As much as Brisbane aren’t being talked about in the same breath as Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory this season, but they have a lot of class, especially while Thomas Broich is running the show there.
Brett Holman will also provide a threat, in his return form injury.
One key to the game will be the passing ability of Wanderers captain Delgado Dimas against Brisbane Roar’s leader Matt McKay.
Dimas has completed more than 1100 passes this season, the leader in the A-League, with McKay second at 954, so it shows what a crucial influence on the game they will both have.
