Brisbane win again to extend A-League lead

12:23 pm on 14 December 2010

The Brisbane football coach Ange Postecoglou says he has no concerns over his side peaking too early after the Roar stretched their unbeaten run to 16 matches with a 1-0 A-League win over Sydney FC.

The Roar are now seven points clear at the top of the table and playing wonderful football, but must find a way to stay finely tuned with the finals still two months away.

Brisbane have not lost since September the 12th, while their clinical handling of Sydney on Sunday was their first ever win at the Sydney Football Stadium in six seasons of the A-League.

Postecoglou admitted his men probably should have scored another couple of goals, but was pleased with the clean sheet.

The coach is conscious of his players practising to grind out games with the business end of the season approaching, but isn't worried that the Roar's winning streak has come too early.

Sydney sit four points out of the top six and must beat North Queensland in Townsville on Wednesday night to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot.
