Roar manager Warren Moon denied Brisbane underestimated a weakened Macarthur FC squad that finished the Queenslanders’ winning run at Dolphin Stadium on Tuesday night

Aiming to trot five A-League wins for the first time since 2012, the Roar were beaten 2-0 by the Bulls, who made seven changes to the team that went down at 2-2 The weekend’s draw against Western started with Sydney Wanderers

In contrast, the Roar named the same team that started Saturday afternoon’s 5-2 home game against Melbourne Victory

But there shouldn’t be a repeat of Brisbane’s brilliant scoring hits Late hits from Denis Genreau and substitute Matt Derbyshire gave the Bulls a decisive away win

“While they made some changes tonight that changed our plans for our facility slightly, we certainly didn’t take them lightly””

Moon added that after four straight wins, the roar hadn’t “progressed”

“We know the A-League is not easy (and) we know that anyone can beat anyone on their day,” he said

“What we’re aiming for is consistent performance We probably weren’t there tonight for performance, but there were still some good moments and we still had enough chances to get something out of this game”

The best chance for the Roar came in the second half when Livewire striker Dylan Wenzel-Halls stepped behind the Bulls’ defense before firing a shot that defeated goalkeeper Adam Federici but hit the post

The Bulls let the roar for this missed opportunity with goals in the 76th and 90 Pay minute

Midfielder Genreau scored the visitors’ first goal after an impressive job by substitute Jake Hollman who defeated veteran Roar defender Jack Hingert before hitting a low cross in the path of his unmarked teammate, whose shot for the Brisbane goalkeeper Jamie Young was too good

Substitute Derbyshire sealed the dying win when he beat Young from range after pounding on a defensive mistake by Roar near the center line

In the defeat, the Roar took their chance to return to the top of the A-League standings, with the Central Coast Mariners still having a three-point advantage at the summit

The Bulls win put them in third place, one point ahead of Sydney FC, who have two games against their NSW rivals
