Western Sydney Wanderers goalkeeper Daniel Margush has hailed the arrival of coach Mark Rudan and says the players are enjoying working under him.
The Wanderers are looking to finish in the top six of the A-League this season and there has been an up-turn in form since Rudan came in to replace Carl Robinson.
Western Sydney have won two of the last four games to close the gap on the top six and will be looking to make more progress when they face Western United on Sunday afternoon.
The players seem to be responding to Rudan's methods and Margush is even happier as he came back into the side to replace Tomas Mejias as they beat Melbourne Victory in midweek.
Rudan brought Margush back into the fold as he was unhappy with the performance of Mejias in the 3-1 loss against Melbourne City and he will keep his place against Western.
"I'm really enjoying it," Margush told reporters when asked about life under Rudan. "It's very structured and disciplined which is, I guess, the way I like things and the way I try to implement my game as well.
"The boys are really enjoying working under him and we're excited to see what we can do for the remainder of the season."
The two sides also met in Rudan's first game in charge with Western winning 1-0 but United coach John Aloisi is expecting a different kind of performance from the Wanderers.
"It'll be a bit of change to the way we played against them last time, I expect it to be very similar to the way they played against Victory," Aloisi said.
"I thought they did really well. I'm not sure if he's going to make too many personnel changes but the players that played did well, we know that it'll be tough, no matter what."
