Amadi-Holloway backing Roar attack to fire


Brisbane Roar forward Aaron Amadi-Holloway is eager to continue building from Sunday’s maiden victory of the Hyundai A-League season.

In his first start for the Club, the Roar overcame a two-goal deficit to topple the league leaders in a seven-goal thriller at Dolphin Stadium.

Amadi-Holloway is confident that Sunday’s win can propel the team forward in the competition.

“It’s [the win] definitely lifted us a lot – we played a few games now where we’ve been a bit unlucky so to play a game like that and get the win is going to give us a boost,” Amadi-Holloway said.

“It’s still early days but we’ve played well and now we just need the results to come along.”

The win was headlined by a hat-trick from striker Roy O’Donovan while the Welshman also found the back of the net for the first time down under. 


After being unfortunate in the early stages of the season to have not found found the back of the net more often, Sunday’s performance showed just how dangerous the Roar can be in front of goal.

“We went from coming close and just not quite scoring to scoring four against one of the best teams in the league – it’s crazy,” the Welshman continued.

“I’m buzzing to get my first goal in my first start in the league – hopefully I can improve on that and get a few more.”

“We will build on it – we haven’t played much together so we have to learn what he likes to do and what I like so we can work better with each other.”

The Roar travel to Wellington to face the Phoenix on Saturday afternoon (4pm KO QLD time) and Amadi-Holloway is excited for his first trip across the ditch.  

“I’ve never been there before so I’m looking forward to going to New Zealand and seeing what the place is like,” he added.

“I’m used to the wind everywhere in England so that won’t make a difference for me.

“I know a couple of players there so that should give me a bit of an insight into how it’s going to be.”
