-

Adelaide United’s four game A-League win streak was ended by Wellington Phoenix, but that hasn’t deterred the Reds from striving for greatness this season says gloveman Paul Izzo.

The goalkeeper said Adelaide were keen to rebound from the result and the loss had not affected their confidence.

’’We’re all extremely disappointed with how things went last weekend,” he said.

’’We’re aware of how good our recent run was but I think at the same time it was a good little wake up call because the season has so long to go.

’’We start again and we look to get the three points this weekend.’’

It was the first time Adelaide had won four games successively since the historic 2015/16 championship/premiership double and Izzo believes that may have played its part in last Sunday’s defeat.

He also agreed with coach Gertjan Verbeek’s three out of 10 assessment of the performance.

’’From the level we were at in the weeks before, it was a fair assessment.

’’For us to get better we have to be honest with ourselves and we have been this week because we know that we didn’t play to our level,’’ he said.

When quizzed about the kick off time and the scheduling of the match affecting the players, Izzo admitted that there are better times to play.

’’Fridays and Saturdays are obviously the preference but what can I say? Sunday is Sunday and my job is to go out and play.’’

A win for the Jets pushes them into the top six, but they haven’t been able to beat Adelaide in their last five meetings while a win for the Reds reinforces a top three spot and puts their season back on track.
