JP pushing for consistency

Head coach Jean-Paul de Marigny spoke to the media this morning about the club's performance against the Mariners and the team's mindset heading into Wellington.

The Wanderers played out a 1-1 draw with the Mariners on Monday night in wild and wet conditions at Central Coast Stadium.

Striker Simon Cox was the hero using all his experience and goal-poaching pedigree to head in an equaliser two minutes from the end to secure what could be a priceless point for Jean-Paul de Marigny’s (JP) side.

"Look for us it was our first game in four months, so you know we did the review today," said JP.

"There's some areas that we did really well and we just need to be a little bit more consistent for longer periods of time. That's what we took out of it. 

"When we do things well, we look well organised and we look dangerous. We created some decent opportunities there to finish the game and it was only a matter of time that we were gonna score, maybe score two and we had some good opportunities to do that."

The Red & Black's mindset will be critical for Friday night's massive clash against Wellington, with the Phoenix set to take no mercy in their charge to the Finals Series. 

"Our mindset is that, you know we go into every game to win games," said JP.

"There's 12 points up for grabs and we'll do our best to get the 12 points.  We'll go into every game with that mindset andwe know that we're a good team. 

"If we do things well, we've got a lot of threats in our team and you know we'll be dangerous.

"The main objective is to challenge ourselves to get where we were, the last game (before) the break."
