Hayden Foxe says that the boys have recovered well after Tuesday night’s disappointing loss in the Westfield FFA Cup Semi Final and that they are ready to return back to winning ways.
Backing up three days after the blockbuster Sydney Derby, the Wanderers were knocked out of the Westfield FFA Cup on Tuesday night after a frustrating 2-1 loss to Adelaide United.
The match marked the first time the Red & Black had reached the Semi Final of the Cup with Foxe assuring that the team has bounced back after the disappointing result.
"They've recovered really well, physically and mentally, with no problem," said Foxe.
"We've had two tough games but the players are conditioned to deal with this hectic and heavy schedule.
"The loss hurt everyone. It hurt the club and it hurt the players.
"It was a chance for us to win some silverware which we all had our minds set on.
"The boys are a strong and resilient group."
The Wanderers have now switched their focus to Sunday's double header with Foxe looking forward to continuing their undefeated record at McDonald Jones Stadium.
"(Newcastle) are a good side. Ernie Merrick has come in and they are very organized.
"They work hard for each other which is what you need to have a successful team environment.
"We want to get back to winning ways.
"We are expecting a tough game and we've had a really good record up there at McDonald Jones Stadium so we are confident going into this game."
