“At 2-0 we had a very good chance,” says Bulls’ coach

-

Macarthur FC coach Ante Milicic believes his team had a good opportunity to get back into the game while being 2-0 down to Sydney FC in the second half.

The Bulls suffered their second home defeat this season, but the game may have turned out differently for Milicic’s side.

“At 2-0 we had a very good chance,” said Milicic.

“With [Lachlan] Rose, maybe if you score that you never know, you might be able to get in a position where you give them some nervous moments towards the end.”

Despite the Bulls playing most of the match with 10-men, Milicic was trying different tactics to get back into the game.

“We took off Meredith, went to the back three, we had Moudi and Matty up top if we could maybe get something on the break.”

“If you’re going to lose one [player], let’s go for it and see if we can get something.”

However, he knew it was going to be difficult for the players to keep up for the rest of the game.

“When you’re defending that long it takes a lot out of you and then in those transition moments you’ve got to keep it, you got such a long distance to travel to get in front of their goal.”

“Yeah it was difficult, we planned for it, we worked on it but unfortunately it didn’t turn out the way we would of liked.”

The Bulls continue to search for their first home win of the season and have another opportunity when they face again their local rivals Western Sydney Wanderers next week.
