Adelaide United v Brisbane Roar: match preview

Adelaide United will hope last week’s bye hasn’t halted their momentum ahead of the visit of Brisbane Roar to Coopers Stadium on Sunday.

The Reds won on their last Hyundai A-League outing, beating the Jets 2-1 in the Hunter, just three days after lifting the FFA Cup.

And they do have a strong recent record against the side from Queensland, winning the last three on the bounce between the two clubs.

Robbie Fowler’s Roar drew 0-0 with the Wanderers last weekend and are still looking for their first win to get their campaign up and running.
