Roar come from behind
Brisbane Roar Youth have come from behind to snatch the three points in a 4-3 win against Redlands United on Friday night.
It was a dramatic injury time as former Roar player Jayden Prasad hit back to level the scoring before Roar quickly took the ball down the end of the pitch after the restart as Nathan Yoon went one on one with Andrew Ralph.
Redlands coach Nick Dibbs was disappointed with the result after Redlands went ahead in the first half.
"We shouldn't have been in the situation to be 3-3 so to me it wasn't worth celebrating, get the ball, start again and we shouldn't be in that position," he said.
"Some people will say feel thankful you got it back to 3-3 with two minutes to go and take the one point but I didn't turn up for a point.
"That game was under control for us as far as I was concerned.
"Not taking anything away from the Roar, they are very quick and very technical, we knew what their dangers were," Dibbs said.
Roar opened the scoring after three minutes through Adam Sawyer who launched a strike from outside the box but Redlands quickly hit back as Shuto Kuboyama managed to stay onside to net his eighth goal of the season.
Roar quickly got back to their feet and started to move the ball around to open up the Redlands defence with their best chance hitting the post.
However, a lapse in defence for Roar saw Kuboyama bag his second after Prasad put in a cross in front of the goal with no one picking up Kuboyama's run.
Both sides continued to have chances but the defenders put their bodies behind the ball to make sure that ball didn't hit the back of the net.
However, the Roar came out firing in the second half and drew the game level two minutes in.
Rahmat Akbari put Roar into the lead after a missed clearance.
There was a shout for a penalty by Redlands and the crowd after the ball looked to have hit the hand of the Roar player in the box but the referee waved it away.
"The first five minutes were I thought was absolutely diabolical but they did adapt quick in the first half," Dibbs said.
"We came into half one 2-1 and to be honest 2-1 and in control of the game, it was very clear how I wanted them to play today and they knew how I wanted to play today but we have to remain disciplined.
"It wasn't disciplined today and they know it," he said.
Redlands are back on the road as they make the trip up to the Sunshine Coast for a Sunday afternoon game against Fire and then Brisbane City before coming back to the Showgrounds for a game against Brisbane Strikers.
