And he's not afraid to throw everything on the line, either.

“Go hard or go home – we’re not there to be conservative, we’re going to be on the front foot, we want to win the game,” Moon told the club on Saturday.

“We’re not worried about sitting back or what might happen if we’re not positive – we’re going to be positive & on the front foot.

“We want to be a part of the big show. We know it’s an open race, as much as we respect the quality around us, we know that if we perform well on Sunday then anything can happen.”

Western are a serious dilemma for the Roar, who may have one of their former star strikers in Scott McDonald, but can be hurt badly by the likes of Besart Berisha and Alessandro Diamanti.

But Brisbane boast their own big-game players of sorts, with star defender Tom Aldred proving an astute signing, who believes he's got the mettle for the occasion. 

“I’ve played in lots of different types of big games, but these are good pressure games,” Aldred said.

“Yes, you know it’s an elimination game, but we’re fully focused on this next game & we’ve prepared ourselves as we have all season. We just need to take that mentality in to it and we’re confident.”
