Ante Milicic has named his playing squad for the Bulls Friday night encounter with Adelaide United tomorrow night at Campbelltown Stadium.
Following the Bulls 2-nil away victory over Brisbane Roar on Tuesday night, Milicic has again shuffled his squad with four changes including Jovanovic, Puyo, Meredith and Walter Scott named for Friday night’s clash against Adelaide.
The only previous time these two teams have met was in a pre-season friendly, where the Bulls claimed a 3-1 win in hot and steamy conditions at Valentine Sports Park.
Macarthur FC coach Ante Milicic said after Tuesday night’s match he was delighted with the result but looked forward to returning home to Campbelltown to take on Adelaide.
“We knew coming to Brisbane was going to be a massive task. I am a firm believer to be successful in this competition you need to use your entire playing squad. We had full confidence in the guys who waited patiently for their opportunity, and tonight showed what we have seen each week on the training pitch.”
“Anyone can beat anyone in the A-League. What we want to do is play good football for longer periods, if we can do that, we believe that will turn into results.
“Tuesday was a good result, now we turn our focus towards Adelaide on Friday night back home.”
