is happy with his team’s performance against the league leaders and believes his side has the potential to climb up in the table.
In a post-match press conference, the 43-year-old said:
"I think in recent weeks we’ve had some tough times.
"A club like Melbourne Victory want to come to any game and collect three points, but I like the fact that our league position suggests we shouldn’t be coming away with anything against a top of the table team.
"Yes, I think there’s a lot of positives we can take from that, and a fighting spirit is one of them.
"There’s players to come back into the team - starting 11 players.
"It’s quite simple when you’re in our position. We need to show we want to play for this football club.
"We need to show a commitment, an enthusiasm, a desire, a want to get something out of the games. While I think we’ve shown that in certain patches in games, there’s always been little things that have crept up.
"Tonight, while again I’m not getting carried away with coming and getting a point, but there’s certain aspects of tonight where the fight, the determination, the not wanting to lose a game of football was very evident - that’s something we can be pleased with."
