Roar revival continues as chase for the six intensifies in Hyundai A-League

It's been a good week for Brisbane Roar FC as their revival continues in the Hyundai A-League.  

The club moved into their fabulous new training base in Logan this week. Finally, they have a facility to match the club's reputation as one of the biggest and best in the league. 

And on Sunday, Roar picked up a handy point on the road to maintain an impressive late-season revival. 

After starting their season with a four-game winless run away from home (D2, L2), Roar are now undefeated in their last four away matches and have five wins in their last seven (W5, D1, L1).

It's coming together nicely for a club that's enjoyed so much trophy success. 

In fact, a win on Sunday and Brisbane would've been in the six. They'll have to wait until next week for a chance to overtake Wanderers when Roar face strugglers the Mariners (Wanderers face Victory). 

On Sunday in Wellington, impressively, Brisbane Roar’s passing accuracy of 82.51% was the highest they have had all season.

They’ve only two previous games with a passing accuracy over 80%, both against Sydney FC - 81.02% away in Round 8 and 80.59% in Round 15.
