    The last-place Brisbane Roar hosts the newly improved Newcastle Jets this weekend, in a match which could certainly go either way. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from Sunday 5pm AEDT.

    The Brisbane Roar, a legendary club in Australian football and a team whose has hosted many fantastic and talented players over the years, sit rock bottom after two rounds.

    Their loss against Melbourne City coupled with the heartbreaking loss at home to Adelaide has left the Brisbane based outfit lacking confidence and spark so far this season.

    However, it’s still early days in the new A-League season with plenty of football to be played.

    The Roar however haven’t shown thus far any type of football that they are known to play, and with the recent losses of their great players of the last few seasons, new players are struggling to fill the void and consequently they team is underperforming.

    Fahid Ben Khalfallah has struggled to fill the boots from the recent departure of Thomas Broich, and Nicholas D’Agostino hasn’t come close to meeting up to Jamie Maclaren’s ability so far.

    New signing Eric Bautheac should help however as the dynamic French winger looks to steer the side into action.

    However if the Roar were to succeed in this game and moreso this season, they need the like of Khalfallah and new signing Massimo Maccarone to start scoring regularly.

    Additionally the Roar need to make Brisbane a place that teams come to fear again, with sides becoming more and more confident of snatching points here in Queensland since players started to leave.

    On the flip side of the coin, we have the Newcastle Jets Who have impressed already this season especially with their new signings.

    The likes of Roy O’Donnovan, Dimitri Petratos and Ronald Vargas has all been influential in the Jets recent success, especially in their first round thumping of rivals the Mariners away from home.

    The Jets have recruited well but there furthermore seems a greater sense of inner self belief and unity within the squad that was severely lacking in recent seasons.

    With O’Donnovan banging in the goals, and Vargas looking like the next Broich, it’s fair to say that the Jets are looking much improved so far this campaign.

    Prediction
    It should be close, and while the Jets are on form the Roar needs points. A draw seems likely.

    2-2
