Australian Football: Milicic to make late call

Macarthur FC boss Ante Milicic will have to leave it until the last minute before naming his side to face Western Sydney Wanderers in Saturday’s derby clash.

Macarthur are priced at 1/3 to finish in the top six and they need to find some form following a disappointing run of results in recent weeks.

Difficult spell

The Bulls head into the game on the back of two 3-1 defeats against Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City and Milicic is not sure which players will be available to him.

After a tough schedule he is waiting to see how the players pull up from the defeat against City on Wednesday night and it will be a late call.

Bulls back to winning ways

"We had two difficult away games in Melbourne plus the travel and then also with the state of the fields in Sydney prior to that, we haven't had the opportunity to do much training," Milicic said.

"We'll have to give them another 24 hours and see how they pull up on matchday and then we'll make a final decision to see who is available and who can participate. We'll go from there."

Extra incentive

Milicic believes a derby game is just what his players need and he is expecting them to raise their game at Campbelltown Stadium.

"We're hoping that being a local derby there's a decent turnout for us and they're the games that the players want to play in," Milicic added. "Regardless of the recent results that we've had I'm expecting a good performance."
