Australian Football: Moon rips into Roar stars

Brisbane Roar coach Warren Moon ripped into his players and says big improvements are needed after slipping to a 2-0 defeat against Perth Glory.

The result leaves Roar bottom of the A-League ladder and there is a chance they could stay there and pick up the wooden spoon at the end of the season.

Missed opportunities

Bruno Fornaroli gave Glory the lead from the penalty spot after just eight minutes but Roar had plenty of chances and arguably should have been leading at the half-time interval.

They were made to pay for their missed opportunities when Fornaroli wrapped up the win with his second goal on 73 minutes and Moon was far from impressed.

Moon admits tough times

The game was played in Launceston, the temporary home for Glory, and Roar remain winless on their travels this season.

However Moon says they have not been good enough when playing home or away and they need to get their act together quickly.

Moon blast

"This problem is not about home and away," Moon told reporters after the game. "This problem is about us as a group, how we need to improve moving forward and cut out the silly mistakes that have pretty much been there since round one.

"From my perspective I felt like we shot ourselves in the foot. We started really poorly and deservedly gave a penalty away and its no-one's fault but our own.

"We were really passive, really lethargic in that first five, ten minutes and we paid the price, but from there we controlled the game. It's an absolute killer the way we conceded that second goal, it was embarrassing.

"We have to be better, because right now we're finding ways to lose football matches. We cannot put it together for 90 minutes and we deserve to be where we are on the table because of that."
