Roar duo to step up in A-League decider

Besart Berisha scores the goals, plenty of them, but the Albanian marksman knows classy midfielder Thomas Broich is Brisbane's heartbeat and the player who makes it all happen.

"The first time I meet Thomas I said: 'Thomas, you are the heart of the team'," said Berisha, acknowledging many of his goals this season have come from the German's silky touch.

"He is a very special player.

"He sometimes does things in a game that you're very surprised about.

"Thomas is a very special talent, he's the best player in the A-League."

Berisha's record 19-goal debut season was recognised on Thursday when he was named the Football Media Association's Player of the Year.

Golden Boot winner Berisha and Johnny Warren Medal recipient Broich are coach Ange Postecoglou's dynamic duo in a quality Brisbane side shooting for a second straight title against a dangerous Perth Glory at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.

Broich starred in last year's amazing comeback grand final victory over Central Coast.

But for the fiery Berisha, who has played extensively in Europe, it's his first chance to win a big title and he's pumped for the game of his life.

Talk to Broich about Berisha and the respect for his teammate bursts through.

"Bes is a very passionate player and he's never won a championship before so this means everything to him," says Broich, who is close to being back to his deadly best after a slow comeback from a shoulder injury.

"You can see he is obsessed by his dream of winning a title.

"If everybody works as hard as they can, they can make the dream come true for him."

The ice-cool Broich is the total opposite to an emotional Berisha, who's run foul of officials a number of times this season.

"I love his passion," smiles a relaxed Broich.

"Off the pitch he's such a calm and peaceful man.

"It's just his burning desire to win everything."

While Berisha can win the game for Brisbane, underdog rivals Perth have their own goal-scoring genius in Shane Smeltz, who has scored eight goals in his last four matches.

Broich had an air of confidence about him this week when asked his thoughts on Sunday's final.

"I feel pretty fit again and my touch has been alright and I feel confident at the moment," he said.

"These are the games you really look forward to.

"It's a big day and on a big days everyone needs to lift their game, myself included.

"I have to be at my best."

Broich conceded Perth had some momentum going and were very dangerous up front with Smeltz in such hot form.

"We've played them three times this year and scored at least three goals against them each time," he said.

"If we achieve that again, a win should be ours."
