Muscat not losing hope just yet

-

Melbourne Victory may have zero points from two games but coach Kevin Muscat still has the same belief as last week and he feels Victory were unlucky not to get something from the derby.

Victory have had narrow one-goal losses to Sydney FC and Melbourne City in the opening two weekends of the new Hyundai A-League season.

Victory got their three marquees back for the derby this week in James Troisi, Mark Milligan and Kosta Barbarouses but they couldn’t quite get Victory across the line to help get the first points of the season.

Muscat believes his team had been unlucky not to get at least a point.

“The overriding feeling is a little bit like last week,” Muscat said.

“I hate doing it, but if you look at everything else apart from the goals, scoreboard and just look at everything else, you’d think there would’ve been a different outcome tonight.”

“We had an abundance of possession. Can’t recall the amount of balls we put into their box.”

Muscat has backed in the playing group, giving supporters his view that they can turn things around despite the concerning start.

“The biggest thing for me is that I know we’re capable of so much more,” Muscat said.

“As a team we’re capable of much more than even what you’ve seen tonight, so that’s the overriding feeling at the moment but obviously disappointed.”

In relation to the belief that his team will get better, Muscat also thought Leroy George is “three weeks” away from his best football after scoring his first goal for the club.

“It was a good bit of play, the goal was excellent and he took it well, he’s still finding his feet physically as well,” Muscat said.

“But there’s no doubt that you can see when he is bright when he is full of energy he causes problems.”

Muscat will look forward to facing Adelaide United away next weekend to get his team’s season off the mark.

“You want to start well, I can certainly say from a performance perspective we’ve not returned anywhere near what we should have,” Muscat said.

“That’s something we’re going to have to deal with because you can go through any of the stats and wouldn’t believe it was a 2-1 defeat but ultimately the main stat they were better than us in was the goals scored.”
