Ante Milicic has named his playing squad for the Bulls first interstate match of the A-League campaign against Brisbane Roar tomorrow night in Redcliffe.
With the Roar full of confidence after a 5-2 win over Melbourne Victory and the Bulls coming off a hard fought 2-2 draw with the Wanderers on Saturday night, Milicic’s men will be aiming to keep their away winning form going for Tuesday night’s match.
Macarthur FC Head Coach Ante Milicic said after the Saturday’s draw with Wanderers he was pleased with the first half effort, but his side needed to do better in the second.
“I was pleased with our first half, we played some good football and created chances. To concede the goal we did when we were 1 nil up, we need to do better. We let them back in the game and the last 20 minutes could have gone either way.
“It was an entertaining game in the end, but we need to do better for longer periods.
“They are a very strong team in transition and we probably didn’t deal with it as best as we would of liked.” Milicic said.
“We’ve got a big squad, Milligan comes back in. They’ve (Brisbane Roar) come off a fantastic win and we’ll be fully prepared to head up there and get a result.” Milicic said.
