Roar coach insists Wenzel-Halls still has work to do

-

Brisbane Roar head coach Warren Moon has refused to heap praise on forward Dylan Wenzel-Halls despite a man of the match performance against Adelaide United on Saturday evening.

The two-goal hero was instrumental in the Roar’s 3-1 win at Dolphin Stadium and helping Brisbane secure their third win on the trot.

While Moon was happy with both Wenzel-Halls and his sides’ performance, he insists the 23-year-old attacker has plenty to work on.

“I think lots more [of improvement left]. I won’t go into everything now, but we talk all the time about things he can work on and improve on,” Moon said.

“Dylan’s really self-aware on what he needs to do but he is really hungry to improve as a player.

“That is the one thing I say about him, he is such hungry player to improve and be better.

“I am sure as he gets more and more confidence, we will start to see a better Dylan.”

The Roar coach was not getting carried away by Wenzel-Halls’ brace but was pleased to see his star forward reaping the rewards of consistent performances.

“He’s good. He has been good every week since he has played so now, he is getting his rewards,” Moon said.

“I have said every week, his performance is very good. Tonight, again two goals and yeah, we are happy.”

Adelaide United head coach Carl Veart was not interested in dissecting Wenzel-Halls’ outstanding performance post-match.

“[That’s] something you ask the Brisbane coach; I am only worried about my team,” Veart said.

“Our performance wasn’t good the first half, I thought the second half we controlled but we just didn’t have any cutting edge.

We didn’t have enough quality in the final third. “

Despite missing his own star striker in Tomi Juric, as well as Spaniard Javi Lopez, Veart does not use this as an excuse for the loss.

However, the United boss does admit the potential inclusion of both players for their upcoming clash against Perth Glory is crucial.

“It didn’t really [affect preparations]. We knew after last week they weren’t playing,” Veart said.

“The team we took in tonight trained with each other all week, so it is something we are going to have to look at.

“They provide a lot more experience into our team and we are a far better side with those two in.”

Overall, Moon was pleased with his side’s third victory in a row and delighted with the chances they are creating.

“We scored three and won the game, so it is great to create them,” Moon said.

“The fact that in every game we have played now, even though we have lost, we have been creating chances. We can’t do much more as a group.”

With Wenzel-Halls netting four goals and two assists to start the season, the Roar will be hopeful their striker can keep improving just as Warren Moon envisages.
