Brisbane Roar will head to South Australia on Saturday hoping they can continue the trend in their games against Adelaide United this season and bolster their finals hopes.
In the two previous encounters this season between Brisbane and Adelaide, the away team has won 1-0 on both occasions. The Roar have won two of their past three matches at Hindmarsh Stadium, with the other result being a draw. And if Mike Mulvey's team can continue that form, they could move as high as fifth on the A-League table.
Brisbane drew 0-0 away to Newcastle last Friday, making it just three goals in their past four matches in all competitions and Mulvey will need to find a solution up front if the Roar are to defeat Adelaide.
While the Reds have only kept one clean sheet in their past seven games, they have averaged 1.43 goals per match in the same period and the likes of Marcelo Carrusca and Dario Vidosic should give Brisbane's back four plenty to think about.
Adelaide caretaker manager Michael Valkanis will no doubt hope 21-year-old Tomi Juric can lead the Reds' attack, as the former Croatia-based striker has scored two goals in as many games since joining the South Australian club.
The only thing standing in the way may be Juric's fitness, as the young forward was substituted after 65 minutes in Adelaide's 2-2 draw away to Wellington last Sunday after wearing plenty of physical punishment from the Phoenix defenders.
The Reds will be missing John McKain, however, due to suspension.
The visitors regain Massimo Murdocca from injury, while Matt Jurman and George Lambadaridis - the latter fresh from signing a new two-year deal - are in an entended squad.
The Reds get two welcome additions, with Jeronimo Neumann back after missing the Phoenix match with a stomach virus and defender Iain Fyfe returning from suspension.
