Australian Football: Milicic backing Bulls quality

Macarthur FC boss Ante Milicic is calling for calm and says there is enough quality in his squad to secure a top-six finish in the A-League.

The Bulls are priced at 4/6 to finish in finals but there is a bit of work to do after they slipped out of the top six last week.

In their own hands

A disappointing 1-0 defeat against Adelaide United and other results going against them saw Milicic’s side slip to seventh place on the ladder.

However they still have games in hand on Sydney above them and qualifying for finals remains in their own hands.

Macarthur take on struggling Brisbane Roar on Friday and Milicic says they have enough quality to get the job done over the coming weeks.

"You can see that it's a very difficult league, it's very unpredictable," Milicic told AAP ahead of the game. "It's been a season like no other.

"We're in a good position. We're at home. There's enough quality in the group to finish off the season in the correct manner and we expect a decent performance tomorrow."

Brisbane threat

Despite being way down on the ladder, Milicic also knows his side are in for a tough game against Warren Moon’s Roar side.

“Their last two performances, against Victory away and Wanderers away have been excellent,” Milicic added. “They've deserved the draw that they've had in those two (games), so we know we're going to be in for a tough game."
