    Match preview:

    Brisbane Roar will be looking to move closer to securing a top-six spot when they host Melbourne Victory. Join The Roar from 7:50pm (AEDT) for live scores and commentary.

    After suffering embarrassing back-to-back losses, and only managing one win in their past five, Brisbane find themselves dangerously close to slipping out of the top six with four games left in the regular season.

    Despite poor results, including a 2-1 loss to last-placed Adelaide United in their last match, striker Jamie Maclaren has been on form, finding the net five times in the Roar’s past five games.

    The Queenslanders can also take comfort in knowing that the Victory struggle against them, having lost just once to the Melbourne side in their past five meetings, and remaining unbeaten against them at home since Round 26 of the 2014-15 season.

    The Victory sit firmly in second place, remaining consistent all season.

    They bounced back from their 1-0 loss to leaders Sydney FC two weeks ago in a big way, dismantling Perth Glory 4-1 win at home, despite going down in the first five minutes of the game.

    Besart Berisha secured his 99th A-League goal, while Fahid Ben Khalfallah, Marco Rojas and James Troisi all scored as well.

    Berisha will have to wait for goal number 100, as the striker is on international duty, as are Rojas and Troisi.

    Prediction
    A trip to Brisbane is always a difficult one for the Victory, made even harder by the fact that they are missing key players who were responsible for scoring 75 per cent of their goals all season. Expect the Roar to continue their impressive form against Melbourne at home.

      If I’m not mistaken SFC become the 6th different Premiers in as many years.

      What a league we have!

      First Roar home match I have not attended, so I watched on Foxtel.

      Commentators Mike Cockerill and Ned Zelic were a joint embarrassment. I lost count of the number of handballs that, according to them, the ref missed. Fact: he didn’t miss any!

      These two belong to the idiot brigade who believe a player jumping for the ball must have his arms strapped tightly to his body, thereby avoiding having his arms in an “unnatural position”. Ned Zelic should know better! Mike Cockerill? Well, he is a good speaker and a fair writer, but what does he really know? Does he have a football background?

      Handball is a deliberate action. The ball hitting the hand is rarely deliberate. Tonight, for instance. The ball glanced off the head of a MV attacker, travelled a metre, maybe two, and hit the arm of a BR defender. Deliberate? No way! Human reflexes are simply not that quick.

      Even Bozza refuses to understand the handball rule, and he should know better!

      Come on, read the rules!

        Australia has a population of approximately 24,000,000, surprisingly about a dozen of the biggest muppets in the country are all employed as football commentators on Foxsports. If a free kick or penalty is missed that should have been awarded to a Sydney or Melbourne team it is replayed in slow motion on numerous occasions with repeated questioning by the commentators of how was that missed. The fact the commentators sometimes miss the incident at normal speed seems to escape them. But if the referee misses a free kick or penalty that should be awarded against a Sydney or Melbourne team, the commentators trot out the old “it will even itself out over the season” reasoning. I have heard less one sided commentary on Liverpool TV and MAN U TV. After seeing Muscat’s antics on the sideline tonight, I feel sorry for the Newcastle coach who was sent to the stands for much less that Muscat and Arnold get away with each week.. You would think that whoever is in charge of the sports department at foxsports, they would send out a directive to put their personal friendships aside fpr the duration of the call and be professional while calling the game.

          SNOOPY – If bowler hats,false moustaches, and walking sticks were freely available we could have multiple Charlie Chaplin “look-a-likes” performing for us at every game. Who knows???,it may well be a “quick” road into TV comedy, for one gets the distinct feeling they are playing it for laughs, as the saying goes in show-biz. jb

          swell said snoopy. Watching at Suncorp, close to the benches, I kept an eye on Muscat who reacted at every ref’s call that didn’t go MV ‘s way, and on the field the carry-on by mV players, especially Khalfallah, questioning ev ery decision by the red. It was a joke to be honest.
