Aloisi berates Brisbane Roar defenders

Brisbane Roar assistant coach Ross Aloisi slammed the team's defenders at a fiery and vocal training session on Tuesday - with the club yet to register a clean sheet in the A-League this season.

An unrepentant Aloisi tore into the Roar's defensive group for a lack of application during a vocal and, at times, heated training session on Tuesday at Griffith University.

Brisbane's focus has switched to defence after a 3-2 loss to Wellington Phoenix that ended their unbeaten start to the season and exposed their defensive frailties.

Two of the goals conceded were easily preventable, and Aloisi - the older brother of head coach John Aloisi - hammered home that point as he demanded quicker reactions from his players.

Veteran fullback Shane Stefanutto, who is back to full fitness and in contention to face the Reds at Suncorp Stadium, described it as a welcome "reality check".

"It was just a bit of honesty in terms of our defending," he said.

"I know Ross as a football player and he's exactly like that as a coach. We love Ross because of that.

"We're men. We don't take it personally. We want that feedback as well so we can rectify those issues."
