Australian Football: More to come from Leckie

Melbourne City assistant coach Petr Kratky says there is plenty more to come from Mathew Leckie now the striker is starting to find the back of the net.

City are priced at 7/4 to win the A-League grand final and if Leckie continues to bang in the goals then they will be in with a good chance of getting there.

Leckie on fire

It has taken Leckie a while to get into the groove since making the switch during the close season but he now has three goals in his last two games.

Two of those goals came in the 3-1 win over Western Sydney Wanderers last start and now his confidence is up Kratky expects the goals to continue to flow.

"He can go another level but he's on the way there," Kratky said. "We know Lecks' quality and he's just proving it to us.

"(With) the hard work and (the attitude to) just keep going, keep going and he does that and he's just getting rewarded for it and the whole team now benefits from it."

Reds fireworks

Next up is a clash with Adelaide United on Tuesday night and after two exciting 2-2 draws against the Reds already this season, Kratky is expecting more fireworks.

"It's always exciting to play Adelaide actually," Kratky added. "Because they're one of the teams who try to press and they're proactive, they just don't sit and wait for counter attacks or set pieces but they're also proactive on the way forward. We're like that as well."

Kratky may have addressed the media ahead of the game but coach Patrick Kisnorbo is expected to return to the bench after missing the Wanderers win through sickness.
