Brisbane Roar coach Warren Moon blamed the windy Redcliffe conditions for his side failing to beat Newcastle at Dolphin Stadium on Sunday night

The Roar lost their scorer mojo after being kept goalless for the second game in a row in a 0-0 draw with the Jets

After 13 hits in a four-game winning streak that saw them topping the A-League at one point, the Roar’s goals suddenly dried up

Brisbane were beaten 2-0 at home by Macarthur FC last Tuesday night There was again a lack of penetration and a knockout blow against the resilient jets

Moon said a positive result is that his team have been clean for the first time this season

“When we talk about creating opportunities, it was a little different from Tuesday night The wind played a pretty big impact on the game, and probably on the quality of the game. Nobody wants to play scratchy games, but we have to negotiate the terms

“I would have loved if we had been a little better on the ball, but considering what I said about the conditions, we’ll make a point””

However, it wasn’t the first time the Roar had played in windy conditions at their new home ground

And after the club had previously used the wind in its favor on the exposed Redcliffe grounds, despite the protests from Moon, it doesn’t want to make excuses

“At 230 there were some dark clouds and a storm that came over, whether here or elsewhere,” Moon said

“You can look at this and say that the weather before kick-off was pretty threatening and while the rain stayed away it picked up the severity of the wind that was the day’s conditions and rightly or wrongly we played like this ”

The Roar has fallen to third place in the table, five points behind leaders Central Coast and one point behind second-placed Macarthur

In their first game since Craig Deans’ permanent coaching, the Jets improved to eight points with seventh place from eight games

The Roar believed in 37th To have taken the lead through Riku Danzaki who headed the ball into the net from close range

Assistant referee Ashley Beecham, however, ruled that the ball was out of play under construction before Brisbane striker Scott McDonald could steer it into the path of the Japanese midfielder

In the 59 Minute, there was more frustration for Danzaki when he had the ball back in the net, only to be right offside

The best chance for Jets came three minutes before half-time when the formidable striker Valentino Yuel fired a fierce long-range shot that Roar goalkeeper Jamie Young had struck before it hit the post

“The weather had a small influence. So good, another goal and four games without a loss So it’s a nice little patch, ”said the Jets mentor
