Brisbane Roar v Melbourne City: match preview

Hyundai A-League football heads to Redcliffe as Dolphin Stadium plays host to Brisbane Roar’s clash with Melbourne City on Sunday afternoon.

Roar will be hoping a new venue brings with it a change in luck – especially in front of goal – after drawing another blank in last weekend’s 1-0 loss to Adelaide United.

Robbie Fowler’s side – who are still searching for their first win of the campaign – have gone 270 minutes without finding the net.

It’s not the type of form you want as the league-leaders come to town in a confident mood on the back of four straight wins.

Even without talisman Jamie Maclaren in the last two weeks, City haven’t missed a beat scoring six goals in two games in his absence.
