Sotirio and that goal celebration

Jaushua Sotirio says the team is in good spirits ahead of Saturday's clash and he's hopeful he'll keep scoring and celebrating goals Lebron James-style for the rest of the season.

This Saturday the Wanderers will be heading into their match against Melbourne Victory high on confidence after some great recent results, something which Sotirio believes is a sign of the Club's luck finally turning.

"Everyone's happy and we are in good spirits.

"The last couple of games we've been winning and that's what we have needed to do. 

"Our luck has finally turned and we're putting away our chances by scoring three goals in each of our last three games" he said. 

Sotirio got onto the scoresheet in the Red & Black's thumping of Newcastle Jets on Saturday and celebrated his seventh goal for the Club very uniquely. 

"That was the Lebron James celebration. 

"Hopefully if I keep scoring goals I'll keep re-enacting that" he said.

There is a possibility, given results across the league, that the Wanderers could finish as high as fourth on the ladder heading into the finals series. 

But before the Red & Black get ahead of themselves, the Wanderers must first focus on their task against Melbourne Victory this Saturday night. 

The Wanderers haven't had any this season against Victory but Sotirio is confident that they get the job done this time around. 

"They're a quality side and they're coming second for a reason. 

"They've got their weaknesses that we can exploit. 

"We'll see during the week what we can do through some video sessions and then we'll go for the win this weekend" said Sotirio. 


Young ones

Sotirio has now clocked over 60 appearances for the Red & Black during his three year tenure and still believes he has room for improvement.

"Since I've arrived, I think I've improved everyday and I'm always looking to learn and see what I can do better. The coaching staff have definitely helped me with that.

"I think on a personal note, I'm maturing every game and taking all my chances by scoring more goals" he reflected.
