Canberra rested and reset for tail end of the W-League

-

It has been a challenging few weeks for Canberra United as they look to get their season back on track. After suffering their first two defeats of the season, United are now searching for a way back into the top four.

The start to the season was promising to say the least, coming into their sixth match undefeated and sitting second on the ladder.

Unfortunately in the W-League, it does not take much for the table to turn against you.

In a matter of three weeks, the position United are sitting in tells a different story to where they were after their 3-0 win against Western Sydney Wanderers just a month ago.

But with just over a month to go of the regular season, the competition is far from over.

With the last five games in sight, Canberra United coach Vicky Linton is excited for the challenge ahead as it is all uphill from here.

“This group of players is a really good group and it has been a really challenging season in a whole load of ways,” said Linton.

“We are just in a good place and all we can do is put our best foot forward.”

With their middle of the table clash with Melbourne Victory coming up, the battle for a top four spot is well and truly on as United have the chance to leapfrog them for fourth place.

After having a bye in the last round, United are now a rested and ready team for the task ahead.

“It has been a good opportunity to reset. It was probably a good time of the year to have that bye.

“You can prepare for that one team and spend a lot of time on the training field working on certain things we want to do.”

United attacking midfielder Demi Koulizakis is confident that despite their previous run of results, that they have the team to get them back into the winner’s circle.

“We just need to take each game day by day and just play our game and we can do anything,” said Koulizakis.
