Australian Football: Macarthur back on track

Macarthur coach Ante Milicic believes his side are starting to find their form as they attempt to make it three wins on the bounce against Newcastle on Saturday.

The Bulls are out to finish in the top six of the A-League at the absolute minimum and appear to have got their campaign back on track thanks to back-to-back wins.

Back in form

The Bulls slipped down the A-League ladder after failing to pick up a win in five games but are back in the groove following a 4-1 win over Adelaide United which was backed up with a 1-0 victory over Perth Glory.

Next up is a clash with the Newcastle Jets at the McDonald Jones Stadium on Saturday and Milicic is keen to keep the good times rolling.

"The last few games we sort of look like we're heading in the right direction again, and we've gotten over that difficult period, delighted to have two wins in a row," he told AAP. "We've had an extremely challenging time with the amount of days away.

"We went up to 36 days without playing a competitive game and that's a long time without football, then when you throw in the pandemic as well for 90 per cent of the of the playing group, it's difficult to play your way back into form."

Impressive Jets

Milicic has been watching video footage of the Jets playing style and has been impressed with the brand of football Arthur Papas has implemented.

However he is keen to stay focused on their own game plan and believes they will have a good chance of getting the points if they stick to it.

"Both teams are coming off Wednesday night games and the weather conditions in New South Wales also haven't been great," he added.

"But in the end, we'll always focus on our service and we believe against any opponent that if we can execute our playing style we're a good chance to put on a decent performance."
