Booing fans no problem for Roar coach

6:07 pm on 10 December 2011

Brisbane Roar football coach Ange Postecoglou has refused to criticise fans who booed his players during Friday night's 2-1 A-League loss to Melbourne Heart.

Treated to champagne football for the past two years, Brisbane fans haven't experienced a loss at Suncorp Stadium since January 2010.

Yet some of them turned on the players on Friday night, booing then from the field after they trailed Heart 2-0 at half-time.

Postecoglou says he can feel the bandwagon getting lighter for sure and they'll jump off as quickly as they jump on - but it's up to his team to do what they can to get them back on the wagon again.

Brisbane next week head to Dunedin to play Wellington Phoenix, again without classy German organiser Thomas Broich.

After going 36 games unbeaten, Brisbane have lost their last two games without Broich, who's out with a heel injury.
