We need to stay positive say’s Greenwood

We need to stay positive say’s Greenwood

After last week’s 2-3 home defeat in the local derby against Sorrento, the Jacks hit the road this week, with a visit to Cockburn City, and keeper Fraser Greenwood said the squad has to stay positive, because the performance last week was one of the best of the season to-date.

The Jacks peppered the Sorrento goal, hitting the woodwork three times, but came away empty handed. Greenwood, who joined the Jacks from Bayswater City, said last week game was unreal, and said the players were gutted after the game after dominating for most of the game. “The whole team including the coaching staff were just as shocked as each other on last weekend’s result,” he said.

“We however are focused on the positives from the game, and we played our style for about 75% of the game, and just a couple of lapses in concentration, and it proved to be costly. I believe if we play like that every week, we’re going to be extremely hard to be beaten.”

The 21-year-old, said Cockburn will be a big challenge, but he said the league is tight and results this season haven’t gone to plan for all teams. “The way this season is going anyone can anyone on the day,” he said.

“We’re preparing the exact same way as last week against Sorrento. We played there in pre-season and came away with a good result, but that’s irrelevant now, and it means everything to us to pick up a win, and hopefully get our first clean sheet of the season.”

The squad has been tested in recent weeks with injury, but Greenwood said the club have a talented squad and whoever is picked can do the job.

“We have strong squad and some of the young players have shown they can play at this level, and the coaches haven’t been afraid of giving them an opportunity, and that keeps everyone on their toes at training and you need to perform to keep your spot.”
