Roar players at fault too: Smith
Brisbane captain Matt Smith believes the Roar's players must take some responsibility for the A-League club's current plight.
The defending champions are ninth in the 10-team competition after 11 matches with just three wins so far this season, their poor form resulting in Rado Vidosic being moved out of the head coach's role on Tuesday.
Vidosic has been shuffled into a technical director's role at the club with Mike Mulvey stepping into the coach's chair ahead of Friday night's grand final rematch against Perth at Suncorp Stadium.
Central defender Smith, who debuted for Australia in the successful East Asian Cup qualifying campaign in Hong Kong recently, is hopeful the shake-up will spark the Roar's ailing campaign.
"It came as a bit of a shock," Smith said of Tuesday's developments.
"The players need to be a bit responsible as well but there's no point looking back, it's all about looking forward.
"Mike's come in and he's been very enthusiastic and motivated. He's certainly driven and that's going to be portrayed within the playing group.
"Hopefully between ourselves, the coaching staff and the club we can be pushing there come the end of the season."
The clash with the Glory is the second meeting between the sides since the Roar's controversial grand final win and will be Perth's first trip back to Brisbane since Besart Berisha's penalty broke their hearts in April.
The Albanian marksman is unlikely to play according to Mulvey after injuring his shoulder against the Melbourne Victory last weekend but the former Queensland Academy of Sport head coach says the rivalry between the two clubs is secondary to getting results at this time.
"It's just the next game," Mulvey said.
"It's history, a very positive part of the Brisbane Roar's history, but tomorrow night is about us finding our mojo again."
The Glory have had their own struggles this week after being forced to deny rumours their offices had been raided by the Australian Federal Police as part of an investigation involving owner Tony Sage.
The club says their premises were not among those entered by authorities and the investigation has nothing to do with the Glory's affairs.
On the field, the Glory will be keen to make it back-to-back wins for the first time this season after their 3-0 victory over Newcastle last weekend.
They welcome young Japanese star Ryo Nagai back from injury for their trip to Brisbane.
Friday's match begins at 8pm AEST (2100 AEDT).
