Supporters can expect goals tomorrow night when Melbourne Heart FC faces Brisbane Roar at AAMI Park in Week 16 of the Hyundai A-League.

The two sides rank third and first respectively in goals scored this season, offering the promise of end to end action in the crucial match-up.

Fixtures between Heart and Roar have also traditionally delivered on the goals front, with an average of 3.25 per game scored across four previous encounters.

The highest scoring affair took place at Suncorp Stadium in September last year, when the Roar produced four goals in arguably the reigning champions leading performance during the 2010/11 season.

While Heart was unable to secure a point from its outings with Roar throughout its debut campaign, it set about rectifying this record in November, when Eli Babalj and Jonatan Germano inspired the side to an upset 2-1 win, ending Brisbane-s near two-year unbeaten run at Suncorp Stadium.

Melbourne Heart FC will need to look out for Mitch Nichols, with the young gun netting twice in four outings against the Red and White.
