Concerns over Suncorp pitch for A-league final

9:18 am on 18 April 2012

The Brisbane football coach Ange Postecoglou is concerned a bumpy Suncorp Stadium pitch could ruin Sunday's A-League grand final clash with the Perth Glory.

With the Queensland Reds scheduled to play the Stormers in a Super Rugby game on Friday night, Postecoglou says the heavy traffic had the potential to spoil the biggest day on the A-League's calendar.

Officials are expecting 50,000 fans to watch the A-League final with the Roar attempting to win back-to-back championships following their unforgettable penalty shootout victory against Central Coast 12 months ago.

Postecoglou, who's been linked to a four-year, $NZ 1.3 million a season deal with the Melbourne Victory, says while his players were disappointed to lose Tuesday night's ACL clash with Ulsan Hyundai 2-1 they would pick themselves up for Sunday's grand final.
