All Thoughts Positive Ahead Of Jets Clash

After dominating the #SydneyDerby, the Sky Blues now turn their attention to a return to Leichhardt Oval as they take on a struggling Jets side this Friday night.

Sydney FC controlled over 67% of the ball in the derby, as well as making 20 shots, producing 549 passes and delivering 27 crosses.

But Head Coach Steve Corica promises the team will be even better this weekend while also grabbing the three points.

“We have been converting our chances, we scored five in the first two games but we really should have had three or four on the night," said Corica.

“We’ll just keep working away with it, keep going and eventually the goals will come."

Corica expressed his delight in the post-match press conference and was all positive when talking about his Sky Blues.

“They played extremely well and I’m proud of their performance," Corica said.

“They (WSW) couldn’t get out of their half, throughout a game we dominated from start to finish.

“Milos [Ninkovic] was sensational as well. That goes for everyone actually, we created so many chances, really good ones too, which is all very positive.”

Milos Ninkovic was a standout in the Sky Blues' side on Saturday night.

Ninkovic was best on park for the Sky Blues, picking up the Under Armour Man of the Match.

The Serbian Maestro was at the heart of every Sydney FC attack, managing four shots, 49 passes and four successful dribbles, continuing his devastating form in the 2019/20 season.  

The Cove also did their job in support of the Sky Blues, acting as the twelfth man in the game, something that pushed the team to play as well as they did and even better this weekend with a big turnout at Leichhardt expected.

The Sky Blues’ opponents this weekend have had a poor start to the campaign as well; gaining just one point after their first two games.

On the other hand, Sydney FC are sitting comfortably in third, one-point adrift Perth and Melbourne City either side of them.

A win against Newcastle would be a perfect result leading into the bye, giving the players an early rest before hosting Melbourne Victory in the Big Blue at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on November 17.

The Sky Blues take on Newcastle Jets this Friday 1st November at Leichhardt Oval (kick off 7:30 AEDT). Get there to back your Sky Blues with tickets available online now, watch on Fox Sports 505 or follow @SydneyFC on Twitter for live updates from the clash.
