Sydney FC’s ‘wing it’ approach a matter of time from working

-

After pulling up short in their first clash of the season against Melbourne Victory, Sydney FC are standing by the promise of their new emphasis, playing with wingers.

The fight of the Big Blue was a fierce one. The Sky Blues looked to be powerful the whole way through, even though Victory left Allianz Stadium with the three points. Steve Corica is confident that his new strategy of playing the ball wide is not the reason that his squad fell through.

“In general, I think we probably dominated the game,” Corica said.

“We created the better chances, and I was happy with how the performance was.

“We made some good movement, some good forward runs.

I think we kept the ball quite well.”

But where exactly was it that this domination came from?

New overseas signings Joe Lolley and Róbert Mak were put to the test as the Sky Blue wingers, right at the heart of Corica’s fresh new plan. When asked about how he thought their performance was for their first game of the season, Corica’s face lit up.

“I think both of them were exciting to watch, good end product from Robbie [Mak], and Joe had a couple of good efforts as well.” he said.

Mak was the one who put away the opening goal of the match, showcasing his ability to pull a result from working hard out wide.

Lolley worked just as hard, effortlessly carrying the ball up the sideline and taking on players. He looked dangerous on multiple occasions, getting balls into the box and taking shots on goal, but just wasn’t quite able to find the back of the net.

The success of Sydney FC’s wingers also shone through in the statistics at the end of the match. The Sky Blues had a total of eight corners across the board, doubling the chances that their opposition had made, with Victory’s corner tally ending up at four.

It was the inability to convert their corners into points that left them falling behind on the score board.

Refining their approach to corners and shoring up some loose threads in the backline will make Sydney FC a force to be reckoned with as the season progresses.
