No choice but youth as embattled Jets fight on

-

The Newcastle Jets head coach Scott Miller was pleased to share the points with Adelaide on Friday night after one of their less than impressive showings.

The Jets lost to Melbourne City 4-0 last week and Miller has shown his admiration for the players’ resilience after such a big loss.

“We worked very hard this week and I must commend the players on their focus” said Miller.

“It was a real determination to improve from last week’s performance against Melbourne City.

“The cleansheet is significant.

“A 4-0 hit will affect the biggest teams and to show that discipline and respect for their teammates in their work ethic today was great.”

Miller has constantly preached belief in his efforts to rebuild the club this season and after a promising start the club have hit a dry spell.

Injuries to key senior players have caused Miller much grief and the squad has been dependent on inclusions of players from the National Youth League roster.

“It’s been hard all year, but an enjoyable process.

“What I’m enjoying is seeing the likes of Nick Cowburn play at left back.

“A young player that’s been rewarded with a start in the A-League on his performance and maturity that he’s shown.

The younger players that have been thrown into the mix, including Cowburn, Braedyn Crowley, Ryan Kitto and Lachlan Jackson have all stepped up to the plate.

Despite the Jets desperate need to sign an influential senior player, the youngsters have done well to keep up with the standard of the A-League.

“I think that’s a talking point.”

“It’s not yellow cards it’s their progression into A-League and playing at a level against a very strong side and not letting themselves down or the team.

“I think its very important that we recognise their achievement playing at this level.”

To add to Miller’s injury headache, he will certainly struggle organising his line up for next week with senior players Jason Hoffman and Benjamin Kantarovski receiving their fifth yellow card of the season and facing a suspension.

The club has also lost Korean signing Lee Ki-Ji who is currently completing a medical for South Korean club, Ulsan Hyundai FC.

With no choice but to bring in some more youth players it will be interesting to see how Miller works his squad considering the lack of depth and choice in the Jets squad.

The Jets take on Western Sydney Wanderers next Thursday in a Christmas eve thriller at Pirtek Stadium.
