Antonis Confident Ahead Of Mariners Clash


Sydney FC hot shot Terry Antonis is confident that the Sky Blues can prevail against the Central Coast Mariners on Sunday (kick of 5pm) as he spoke of how happy the playing camp was at the moment.

Antonis believes that while the Sky Blues may have the inside information on the Mariners through former employees Graham Arnold, Bernie Ibini and Pedj Bojic, they will need to be at their best to overcome the Gosford club.

“They’re a tough side and they’ve always been a very hard working side,” he said.

“I think having Arnie here he knows the background of the Mariners so I think we will get it over them.

“It’s going to be good knowing some information about them but we just have to keep playing the way we’re going,” he continued.

“Everyone is happy. We go out every day working hard and training hard so we can get the results on the weekend.

“Arnie is a great coach and since day one he’s changed a heap of things. Everyone’s happy and everyone wants to train and win for him.”

The Socceroo is enjoying the abundance of striking talent in front of him on the field and is confident that there will be more performances like the one that saw the Sky Blues overcome Brisbane Roar on Friday if they keep working hard.

“It was a great win on Friday,” Antonis said.

“We haven’t beaten them in ages so we did well. The boys did well tactically and stuck to the job and it was a great game to be a part of.

“It’s great when you see all the strikers up front. We’ve got good attacking players and there’s great options going forward and we’ve always got options to pass to.

“We’ve just got to keep going, we’re working well and training hard and we’ve just got to keep getting results.”

It will be a reuniting of sorts as Head Coach Graham Arnold joins Bernie Ibini and Pedj Bojic in facing their former club when Sydney FC host the Central Coast Mariners on Sunday.
