Strike Force: Taking chances our key to win

The only thing we are missing at the moment is the ability to hit the back of the net.

All the statistics indicate we should probably be winning games, but unfortunately the three points just haven’t been coming our way.

Last week against Brisbane Roar it was the case again. 

It was another strong performance from the boys and in larges patches we showed what we can do when we put it all together. Unfortunately though for the fifth time in our past six matches we left the stadium with only a share of the spoils. Part of the reason for that was our misfiring attack in front of goal – something I myself played a part on the evening.

We’ve put in the hard yards on the training paddock this week to ensure that isn’t a problem again when we travel away to the Central Coast this weekend.

The Mariners have surprised some with their start to the A-League campaign.

Mariners coach Paul Okon has had a lot to do with that beginning after handling what was a pretty big transition for the club in the off-season.

We expect they’ll be on a pretty big high after knocking off the Perth Glory last weekend, but will travel up the coast ready to get an elusive victory.
