Disciplinary Record: OctoberPosted: October 31, 2014
Over the course of the season we’ll keep tabs on the yellow and red card situation for both Brisbane and the rest of the league. It all adds up to the ‘Fair play Award’ on the A-League’s annual awards night, and Brisbane Roar won both the A-League and Youth League fair play award. In fact Brisbane have won the award for four successive seasons, and five times in six years all up. For those unaware of how the points are tallied up- here’s a reminder:
Yellow Card – 1 point
2nd Caution Red Card – 2 points
Direct Red Card – 3 points
Here’s how the overall standings shape up after the opening month of the season, with one game between Western Sydney and Central Coast.
With the round one red card for Matt McKay and seven yellow cards over the opening three games, Brisbane sit at the bottom of the table after the opening month of the new season. Meanwhile Wellington have been the most disciplined team over the opening month with just one yellow card to date.
Luke Brattan is the only Brisbane player to pick up multiple cautions so far this season, however he’s still got a while to go before he’s in danger of an automatic suspension due to yellow cards. Matt McKay’s red card was the fourth of his Brisbane Roar career, and also took him back to the top of that statistic- one clear of Besart Berisha.
