Australian Football: Aloisi backs Western to kick on

Western United coach John Aloisi says his side have what it takes to keep the good times rolling after they picked up another victory over Perth Glory on Sunday.

Western are priced at 6/4 to win the A-League minor premiership and they are showing no signs of slowing down as they continue to pick up the wins.

Unbeaten run

United beat Glory 2-0 thanks to goals from Aleksandar Prijovic and Dylan Pierias at UTAS Stadium in Launceston to stretch their unbeaten run to a club-record seven matches.

Their last defeat came against Wellington Phoenix on 21st January and they are currently sitting pretty at the top of the A-League ladder with 29 points from 14 games.

That is more points than they achieved in the whole of last season and Aloisi says they are not done yet despite having some tough games and plenty of travelling on the horizon.

They fell away last season as they travelled around Australia but Aloisi says they are a different animal this time.

Aloisi confident

"We've spoken about certain things that they didn't do last season," he told reporters after the Perth Glory win. "Talking about looking for excuses when things didn't go so well. Looking for excuses about 'we haven't got a home, we're playing in four different stadiums'.

"I was very quick to mention that to the players at the beginning of the season.

"We know what we've got, we know where we're headed. Let's enjoy the journey and enjoy whatever's put in front of us and every obstacle that's in front of us and let's adapt."
