Australian Football: Milicic looks to go out with a bang

Macarthur coach Ante Milicic is backing his side to finish the season strongly and secure their place in the top six of the A-League.

The Bulls are priced at 11/4 to make finals and have two games to do it starting with a clash against Newcastle on Sunday. They then wrap up the regular season against Western Sydney Wanderers.

Out of their hands

Macarthur sit in seventh place on the ladder and will have to win their last two games and hope that other results go their way if they are to make it.

The Bulls are determined to give it all they have got though after Milicic revealed earlier in the week that he will leave the club at the end of the season.

"Extremely confident that we can get the right result," Milicic told AAP. "I know that we're more than capable. We've got a lot of quality in the dressing room.

"Yeah things need to potentially go our way but we can look no further than Sunday. We've got so much to play for and I expect us to be very competitive."

Stars back fit

Milicic has been boosted by the return to fitness of Ulises Davila, Craig Noone, Tomi Juric and Danny De Silva. And he cannot help but think what might have been had they been fit and playing together all season.

"It would be good if they could somehow be on the pitch at the same time because we're a different proposition when we have them in the attacking third,” he added.
