Brisbane Roar to regain Broich for Perth Glory clash

League leaders Brisbane Roar will be boosted by the return of star midfielder Thomas Broich for tomorrow night’s clash at Suncorp Stadium.

The German playmaker missed Sunday’s 1-0 win over second-placed Adelaide United with a groin niggle but will be back in the starting line-up with the Glory come to town.

Broich admitted it was tough watching but was happy the side could get the job done without a handful of key players.

“I’m absolutely looking forward to playing tomorrow, especially at home,” Broich said.

“It’s always great fun playing at Suncorp so I can’t wait for the game to begin.

“It was hard to watch the game, especially because it was a top of the table clash against Adelaide.

“It’s a good thing to see that it’s the structure and the idea of football that works, not just individuals.”

And Broich had a message for the Glory, who have already stated in the press this week that they can cause an upset and end their 19-game unbeaten run.

“We are a team that is all about performances, it’s nice to have the streak but to be perfectly honest, I think the pressure is on other teams,” Broich added.

“We are quite confident at the moment and they are coming to Suncorp, they should be intimidated.

“Robbie Fowler is very dangerous and their whole team has certainly improved but we’re at home and we’re top of the table.

“If we keep our momentum and play the way we’ve been playing, we should win this game.”
