Fowler: We will fight for eachother


Head Coach Robbie Fowler says complacency won’t be an issue for his side despite a sparkling run of recent form.

The Roar’s 1-0 win over the Jets on Friday was the side’s third consecutive victory – a streak that hasn’t been achieved by the Club since the 2016/17 campaign.

Highlights: Roar v Jets

The last 10 Hyundai A-League fixtures have brought about 22 points from a possible 30 for Fowler’s men and has seen them consolidate a spot inside the league’s top four.

With four regular season matches still to play, Fowler says his side knows there is plenty of work still to be done.

“There are a lot of points to play for,” Fowler said.

“When we were playing well at the start of the season and not picking up point we weren’t getting carried away and we aren’t now.”


Striker Scott McDonald finds himself in a purple patch of form having scored in three straight outings, including the crucial sole goal in the last two.

The Roar have maintained a focus on strong performances across the entire squad, and the Head Coach was pleased with a number of individual shifts on Friday night.

“All we can do is go out there & play the way we can, and if it means the likes of Scotty Mac plugging away and getting goals – Brad Inman’s performance today was really good as well,” Fowler added.

“The two lads in midfield, Jay O’Shea & Aiden O’Neill were really good too.

“Scotty will get the plaudits because he scored a great goal again and it’s the third game running that he’s scored.

“We’ve always said it’s not about one individual, it’s about what we’ve got as a team.

“We’ve answered a lot of questions as the season’s gone on. We’re a good bunch of lads and they will fight & work for each other.”
