    Round 23 A-League kicks off at Allianz Stadium on Friday night when Sydney FC host the Brisbane Roar. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 7:30pm AEDT.

    Brisbane put nine goals past Sydney in their last two clashes but this week they meet a Sky Blues side hot off a 3-1 derby win over Western Sydney.

    With the addition of centre-back Sasa Ognenovski Sydney also have a much improved defence.

    The Roar have already secured a finals spot but could wrap up the Premiers’ Plate with victory on Saturday, should other results go their way.

    So the pressure is squarely on Sydney who are desperate to hang on to their top-six spot with only five games remaining.

    Brisbane will be without Socceroo Ivan Franjic, who injured his ankle last week.

    Jade North, James Donachie and Jean Carlos Solorzano are also sidelined by injury for Brisbane.

    Key: Besart Berisha.

    The Albanian striker didn’t score any of his side’s nine goals against Sydney but, having returned to his attacking best with a brace last week, he’ll be looking to continue the barrage.
