Bulls need to focus on themselves says Milicic

-

Macarthur FC boss Ante Milicic says his team needs to focus on themselves for the remainder of the season.

The month of April was the perfect opportunity for the Bulls to collect a handful of points, however, so far they have only picked up four points from four games.

“We have to worry about ourselves,” Milicic said.

“If you start looking at the other teams around you – who they have to play, how many games they’ve got, when they’re playing – we just focus on ourselves.”

Milicic said the side had had a difficult week but with eight games to go their focus had to be on the future.

“We believe that when we play our football and when we play to our strengths we’re a good side and we’re just going through a difficult patch at the moment but there’s enough quality in that change room,” he said.

“Hopefully next week we get a couple of bodies back and we can still make sure that we’re competitive for this final phase.”

The Bulls have dropped a total of eight points in their last three games including Sunday’s fixture against Newcastle Jets, which ended in a 2-2 deadlock.

Milicic had to face the situation of losing a few players in recent games, but said he was hoping he would have most of his main players at his disposal for next week’s game against Melbourne City.

“We’ve lost Susaeta, Franji, McGing and even Jovanovic the other day that’s been difficult for us, but all teams go through that, all teams at some stage in the season lose a couple of players,” he said.

“We’re going through this phase at the moment it’s just we got to get some performances and some points as soon as possible because with eight games to go we put ourselves in a decent position.

“But again, we can’t keep on missing the opportunities like we did tonight.”

Macarthur will have a difficult challenge next week when they face top of the table City at Campbelltown Stadium. It will be the ultimate test for Milicic’s players, if they are to get back to their winning ways.
