Kruse on ice as Brisbane visit Adelaide ALM 'graveyard'

Brisbane Roar coach Warren Moon says Adelaide United's Hindmarsh Stadium has been a "bit of a graveyard" for his A-League Men team.

Brisbane Roar aim to breath life back into their A-League Men campaign away against an Adelaide United side who have given them grief in recent clashes.

The Roar have not beaten Adelaide in their past six outings and on Saturday night they will have to turn around the awful form they displayed last week in an uncharacteristic 4-0 loss to Newcastle Jets.

The Roar, who haven't scored a goal in their last three matches, will be without star signing Robbie Kruse - Brisbane coach Warren Moon says the 34-year-old isn't yet match fit but hopes he'll play the following week.

The Roar are in 10th position on the ALM ladder with 16 points, four points behind fifth-placed Adelaide.

"It is not an easy to place to go and try to get points. It has been a bit of a graveyard for us the last couple of years," Moon said.

The Roar pride themselves on their defensive efforts and don't want a repeat of last week.

"I put it down to one of those games. It was so unlike us ... four second-half goals," Moon said.

"The challenge for us now is to try and bounce back and show that was just an anomaly.

"We are going to play an excellent side in Adelaide and if we are not at our very best it is going to be a tough night."

The Reds were collectively in shock at the horrific broken leg suffered by popular clubman Juande in their 3-3 draw with pacesetters Melbourne City last Sunday.

Juande was returning to Adelaide on Friday after having surgery in Melbourne, having broken both the tibia and fibula bones in his right leg.

"The noise, I don't think you will ever get that noise away, it was quite confronting," Adelaide coach Carl Veart said.

"But knowing Juande ... he will bounce back and it won't be long before he's giving our medical staff grief to get back.

"I have had a few people reach out to me that have had similar injuries to say they're more than happy to speak to him because it is a difficult injury as a professional player to go through."
