Win just the start of recovery, say Roar

New Brisbane coach Mike Mulvey says his first A-League win is just the start of the Roar's rejuvenation.

Mulvey banked his initial triumph since taking over as coach from Rado Vidosic a week ago when Brisbane prevailed 1-0 away against Adelaide United on Thursday night.

"We have drawn a line in the sand now," said Mulvey after his second game in charge.

"We have come to a very tough place (Adelaide) and come away with three points ... but it's only the start.

"These players now have got a real taste for it, they're very circumspect in the dressing room, they know that it's just the start and there is a long way to go."

Brisbane rose from ninth to seventh with the win, pending results from the rest of the round.

But Mulvey was reluctant to declare the reigning champions back as a force able to again challenge the league's upper echelon.

"The table doesn't lie - we are where we are because we deserve to be where we are," he said.

"Ask me again in about five or six weeks' time."

Brisbane's win was secured by a second half strike from Henrique, after Mitch Nichols sliced through Adelaide's defence to gift the striker the score.

"We came with a very positive mindset and it showed," Mulvey said.

"We played an aggressive pressing game and put them under pressure and forced them to cough up the ball a lot.

"I'm a little bit critical of the fact we were a bit sloppy at times in terms of possession, we coughed up the ball in some bad areas for us, but the defending after that and the recovery after that was very good.

"I want to make sure we don't cough it up in silly areas, we will work at it, but I'm a hard marker in this situation and rightfully so, we need to improve and we will do."

Brisbane's next fixture is hosting Wellington Phoenix on New Year's Day.
