Brisbane Roar  will welcome attacking ace Thomas Broich  back into their line up when they host Sydney FC  at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night. Brisbane clearly missed their midfield maestro during his absence and even slipped to five straight defeats at one stage. They have since regained some form however and played out a draw  against the resurgent Adelaide United at Hindmarsh Stadium last week. As well as getting Broich back, Brisbane could also have Henrique  return, although marksman Besart Berisha  is under an injury cloud after missing training this week.

Sydney FC come into this fixture on the back of a poor run of form that has seen them lose their past three matches. Although they were only beaten 1-0 by league leaders Central Coast on Sunday, it is worrying that they have conceded nine goals in those matches. The sky blues form has dropped off considerably since they ended Brisbane’s 36 game unbeaten streak with a 2-0  victory at Kogarah Oval in December. Dimi Petratos  and Brett Emerton  were the goalscorers on that occasion.
