Midfielder Kearyn Baccus believes the tide is beginning to turn for the Wanderers after a string of positive results.
The Red & Black notched up two victories last week, pulling off an impressive 3-2 win against FC Seoul in the Asian Champions League in South Korea on Wednesday night, before backing that up with a dominant 3-1 triumph over Wellington Phoenix in the Hyundai A-League just four days later.
“Two wins under our belt; it was a great week,” said Baccus today.
“We’ve been confident since the Adelaide game and hopefully things continue onto this week’s game.
“We’re in a lot better place than we were a couple of months ago but I think things are going to turn.”
The Wanderers' win on Sunday at Spotless Stadium gives them a five-point buffer over seventh-placed Wellington with four games remaining but Baccus says there’s still plenty of work to be done before the Red & Black can look to finals football.
“We’re not complacent. We’re still working hard week-in-week-out,” said Baccus.
“We just have to take things one game at a time and things will happen for us.”
Friday’s clash with Melbourne City looms as a big opportunity for the Wanderers to further cement themselves in the top six and Baccus says his side will be up for the challenge after losing to the Victorians in their last meeting.
“We’ve played good against them so far, we’ve just been unlucky.
“One red card last time we played them; we played with 10 men for the majority of the game.
"We limited them to not a lot of opportunities which is good but I think there’s a good chance of us coming away with the result this weekend."
“I think I’m still getting there. I’m not quite there yet, I’ve still got a lot way to go.
“I’ve just got to keep working hard and things will get better and better."
