Wolves coach Jacob Timpano expects gun signing Nick Montgomery will only improve off a strong debut performance for the club on Sunday.
Montgomery put in a 90-minute shift in the heart of Wollongong’s midfield in the club’s well-earned 2-0 win over Rockdale City Suns.
The 35-year-old joined the club on Friday after retiring from A-League side Central Coast Mariners and was quick to make his presence felt in his first appearance in Wolves colours.
“He is a leader and experienced,” Timpano said.
“As you saw [on Sunday] he directed the team around him which is what we require of him.
“He was good and will only improve.'
“He has only had an hour session with the boys so once he gets used to the team he will settle in quite well.”
Montgomery’s arrival helps fill the void left by Ben Tosi, who broke his foot last month. Montgomery partnered Brendan Griffin in midfield on Sunday.
