Australian Football: Roar out for Nix revenge

Brisbane Roar midfielder Jay O'Shea says they will be out for revenge against Wellington Phoenix on Saturday after losing 3-0 earlier in the campaign.

Roar sit bottom of the ladder and are priced at 7/4 to end up with the wooden spoon, so they need to start picking up wins sooner rather than later.

Revenge mission

The Roar were completely outplayed by the Nix at Leichhardt Oval back on 16th February and there will need to be a huge improvement in the latest meeting.

Wellington are going well and are unbeaten in their last five games but O'Shea says Roar will be out to end that run and gain some revenge.

"We've watched the video back a couple of times on that one," O'Shea said ahead of the game. "We've watched the clips this week and we're going to have to change the way we played against them.

"We'll be coming out as a different team. We owe them one after the three-nil defeat down there. That was probably our poorest performance of the season. We'll be hoping to make it right tomorrow."

Moon ready for the test

Coach Warren Moon knows his team will be in for a tough examination against a team that are in form but believes it is just what they need right now.

"It's a test we need," Moon added. "We need to find a win against good opposition - the team that beat us a few weeks back and exposed a couple of things in the way we play. The test is there for us."
