New Roar ALM coach starts with 2-1 win over Glory

Interim Brisbane Roar coach Nick Green started his tenure in the best possible fashion with a comeback 2-1 home win over Perth Glory in an A-League Men clash that featured a new playing style for the home side.

The Roar sacked coach Warren Moon on Monday after a run of poor form and replaced him on an interim basis with Englishman Green.

Green said the day before the game he had a 22-point plan to turn the club around, but added he had identified three he would aim to implement in the eight weeks of his interim contract.

It was clear up-tempo, attacking football is on his agenda as the Roar played with enterprise and fire in the belly on a warm Sunday afternoon in Redcliffe.

"The group has got it within them to win games. We want to win more," Green said.

"It has been a tough week for the group and the club. The lads have gathered really well ... and we are really pleased with them."

The match was marred by a head injury to Glory central defender Darryl Lachman, who was taken to hospital by ambulance after a clash with the Roar's Henry Hore in the 87th minute. The incident forced the game to be halted for 10 minutes.

The Roar, now on 20 points, hadn't won in their past seven games and will now entertain hopes of making the finals if they can keep this style of play up, as they are just four points outside the top six.

Glory coach Ruben Zadkovich's week had a bizarre twist when he was forced to deny a rumour that he had punched Perth midfielder Giordano Colli.

Zadkovich said on Friday their alleged bust-up was merely a collision of bodies at training. Colli came on in the 79th minute against the Roar.

Zadkovich's concern after the game was with Lachman.

"He was fine on the ground and was going to continue. They strapped his head up and when he stood up he lost consciousness," Zadkovich said.

"A very scary moment not just for him but for everyone involved.

"Our thoughts are with Daz right now."

Glory opened the scoring with a brilliant goal in the 19th minute by left back Jack Clisby, who sent a scorching right-footer past goalkeeper Jordan Holmes.

Brisbane hit back with their finest goal provider Carlo Armiento curling a corner onto the head of their best player Tom Aldred in the 28th minute.

The Roar played with more passion than recent months, with Armiento having a push-and-shove with Glory's Salim Khelifi just before half-time.

That fired the home side up with attacking midfielder Hore scoring what proved the decisive goal moments later in the 45th minute.

Both sides had chances in the second half but could not convert.
