BRISBANE Roar coach Mike Mulvey says there is still plenty of room for improvement despite a morale-boosting 2-0 win over bottom-placed Wellington Phoenix on Sunday.

He also said fans who unveiled a banner - subsequently removed because it breached club protocol as it did no have approval regardless of content - which read "Mulvey out" were entitle to their opinion and he and the team would be working to strive for improvement in the final six games before the A-League finals.

"The fans have a right to an opinion and I respect that and that should always be the case," Mulvey said.

"All I can control is what we do. What we do at training and what we do on the park and we are striving to improve that.

"I share the fans' disappointment. This season for Brisbane Roar has been a disappointing one in where we are at right now.

"But that doesn't mean to say we are giving up.

"We want to work harder because we want to please the fans, we want to make the fans happy because it's their club.

"That's what the club exists for is the fans. I share their disappointment and hopefully we can grow to bigger and better things."

Mulvey said this weekend's away clash with Newcastle Jets was important but it would not be disastrous if the team did not get the desired result.

"If you start thinking about what ifs you start forgetting about what must be done," he said.

"Yes it's a very important game, is it fatal if we lose? No it's not, will it be demoralising yes it will.

"But the key thing is we go there in the belief that we can win the game."
