Roar trio in Round 18 Team of the Week


Three Brisbane Roar players have been named in the Hyundai A-League Round 18 Team of the Week.

The Roar recorded back-to-back home wins for the first time this season to reclaim their spot inside the top six with a 2-1 victory over Adelaide United on Sunday.

Maiden Hyundai A-League goals for Mirza Muratovic & captain Tom Aldred was enough for the Roar to overturn a deficit created through a second-half Ben Halloran goal & maintain their unbeaten home start to 2020.

Take a look below at who made the cut for this round’s Team of the Week.

Jamie Young (Brisbane Roar)

The Roar custodian is no stranger to the Team of the Week and he makes the XI again with another outstanding display against the Reds.

There was nothing Young could do to keep out Ben Halloran’s clinical strike, while he made four vital stops throughout the 90 minutes as Roar held on for a valuable 2-1 win in front of their home fans.


Tom Aldred (Brisbane Roar)

Aldred always lets his actions do the talking and the Roar skipper was at his dominant best on Saturday night against the Reds.

The English defender was instrumental in limiting the visitors to few genuine goal-scoring opportunities before having the final say on proceedings with a towering header at the far post to put Roar in front.

Talk about the perfect time to score your first Hyundai A-League goal as the three points took Robbie Fowler’s side into the top six.


Scott McDonald (Brisbane Roar)

He may not have got on the scoresheet but McDonald was highly influential in Roar’s come-from-behind win over the Reds.

The former Socceroos attacker was involved in both of his side’s goals and his four chances created was the most of any player in the match.

It’s no coincidence Roar’s best form of the campaign has come with McDonald joining the club from Hyundai A-League rivals Western United FC.
