Newcastle Jets finals dream still alive

-

Newcastle are climbing their way back into finals contention after an inconsistent season with impressive new additions and an improved attitude from key players at the club.

There’s no mistaking that Morten Nordstrand is exactly what the Jets have been missing all season.

The former Danish international scored two impressive goals in Saturday’s game against Wellington Phoenix to earn Newcastle three points and a crucial win at home edging them closer to the possibility of creeping into the top six.

“I don’t think you’ll see a better goal this weekend in the A-League,” said Miller of Nordstrand’s first goal.

“He told me he was going to score this week which is nice to hear as well so he’s very confident.

“With the addition of Morten and Steven there’s a different dynamic to the group and they don’t just share the leadership qualities but the ability technically to hold up the ball and recognise situations so it’s very pleasing for the group to come out with three points today,” said Miller.

The Jets have finally shown the consistency and drive that has been lacking this season and it has much to do with the new additions to the club as well as an improved attitude of several key members.

“I think what I’ve seen over the last month is consecutive, consistent performances and that’s rewarding of the group and their training ground mentality,” said Miller.

“I’m starting to see a nice trend which is more important in terms of combination play and an understanding of how we play of Milos and supporting him as a platform.

The Jets are currently six points behind sixth placed Sydney FC which is quite a surprise after they went ten games without a win in the middle of the season.

While it’s promising that there is still hope for the club, Miller is disappointed the squad didn’t seize the opportunities earlier in the season to maximise their chances at making the final six.

“It’s panning out to be quite interesting,” said Miller.

“I think it’s a nice position but I’m not sitting here happy with 23 points.

“I look at what we’ve lost over the course of the season and the opportunities we’ve had and I think there were four or five occasions to go into the top six and there were occasions where we could have gone top at periods of time but we didn’t take those opportunities.

“You sort of consider and think back not to be reflective or disappointed but more to show the development of the team is there and two more wins and we’d be in the top six outright.

“It’s nowhere near where I want it.

“It has to improve.”
