Australian Football: Aloisi ready to make changes

Western United coach John Aloisi is ready to rotate his side to keep the good times rolling against Macarthur FC on Tuesday night.

Western are priced at 16/1 to win the 2021/22 A-League grand final and have got the season off to a great start when jumping to second place on the ladder.

Busy schedule

The games have been coming thick and fast for Western and they were in action on Saturday when picking up a 1-0 win over reigning premiers Melbourne City.

It does not leave them a great deal of time to rest up and recover for the game against the Bulls but Aloisi believes the feel-good factor will help his players raise their game again.

"We're pretty pleased with how things are going," Aloisi told AAP. "We understand it's still a long way to go and we've still got a lot of improving to do but we're picking up wins, we're playing pretty well.

"Tuesday's another test for us but at the moment it's going pretty well."

Squad rotation

Aloisi has admitted he is set to make one or two changes just to freshen things up and is boosted by the return of Japanese defender Tomoki Imai from suspension.

"See how they recover tomorrow. I haven't made a decision on anyone yet but if we need to rotate and bring in fresher legs, younger players that haven't had the minutes as much as these other players then you know we'll do that because we have full faith in the squad," he added.

"We're going to need to rotate - that's 100 per cent. You'll see changes, just don't know who yet."
