Australian Football: Aloisi staying firmly grounded

John Aloisi has warned his in-form Western United side not to take anything for granted, despite their lofty A-League standing.

Western are currently level on points with league leaders Melbourne City and are the form team of the division, with Aloisi's team rated at 4/1 to win the Grand Final this season.

Western in top form

They are unbeaten in their last seven games, having won their last three of four of their last five, meaning that they are level with City and have two games in hand on their rivals.

All of which means that Aloisi is in upbeat mood ahead of a visit from Newcastle Jets on Saturday, with Western set to be without injured duo Alessandro Diamanti and Connor Pain.

He told reporters: "I know it sounds like a cliche that you take it one game at a time, but you have to really only focus on your next game.

"Because if you look too far ahead, it starts to get away from you what your main focus really is, which is first of all your training, preparation, processes that go into preparing for a game and then the game itself."

Aloisi - Long way to go

"We're not looking at it too much, we know there's plenty of football to be played.

"We're happy with the way it's going of course; we're happy with the position we're in, but we know that we want to keep on building, keep improving and keep on picking up results."

United won both meetings with the Jets last season and kept clean sheets in both of those two victories.
