Hol­man says Roar will turn the cor­ner

The Northern Star - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL: For­mer Soc­ceroo Brett Hol­man (pic­tured) is not giv­ing up on the A-League fi­nals just yet de­spite Bris­bane Roar’s win­less start to the sea­son.

Hol­man, who scored the late equaliser in the Roar’s 1-1 draw with Mel­bourne Vic­tory last week, said he was con­fi­dent things would turn around for the bot­tom team and a win over Mel­bourne City on Fri­day would be the cat­a­lyst for a bet­ter run.

Asked if it was time to re­assess tac­tics af­ter six games with­out a vic­tory, the at­tack­ing mid­fielder said: “Not at the mo­ment, just be­cause we be­lieve in what the coaches are do­ing.

“If you see what we’re do­ing at train­ing ... it works. It’s just ob­vi­ously putting that out there on the week­end.”

The Roar should re­gain Jade North (virus) and Fahid Ben Khal­fal­lah (groin), but Dan­ish mid­fielder Thomas Kris­tensen (ham­string) is at least an­other week away while new sign­ing Ivan Fran­jic won’t be risked.
