Australian Football: Milicic wants Bulls response

Macarthur coach Ante Milicic says it is crucial his players recover and get ready to go again after their finals hopes suffered a setback on Tuesday night.

The Bulls are priced at 4/7 to finish in the top six but there is work to be done after slipping to a 2-0 defeat against second-placed Western United.

Strong position

Despite the defeat Macarthur still remain in a strong position as they sit sixth on the ladder on 32 points. However Central Coast Mariners in eighth spot are two points behind and do have a game in hand.

But it is points in the bag that count at this stage and Macarthur will be confident of getting the job done over the remaining games.

Milicic’s men are back in action on Friday night and could be boosted by the return of Danny De Silva from injury.

Tomi Juric also got some good minutes under his belt against Western United and Milicic says the return of key players is a big boost.

"We played a decent match against a team that's fighting for top spot," Milicic told reporters after the game. "But ultimately now it's about looking at who can recover, who can back up.

"We've been in this situation before, we've been in and around that top six the whole season and there's three games to go, all three at home. We've got enough quality in our dressing room and a belief that we can finish the season in in a positive and correct manner."
