Sydney FC recruits Joe Lolley and Robert Mak have head coach Steve Corica excited about where they can take the Sky Blues after key performances in a breakthrough 3-1 win over Western United.
The Sky Blues’ first win of the A-League Men season proved a riotous display of the potency of their new 4-3-3 formation and their focus on dribbling wingers.
Tricky and clever Mak and Lolley were the difference as the Sky Blues fought back from a goal down to condemn the reigning champions to a 0-2 start to their title defence on Sunday.
“Very nice that Robbie scored again. He’s got goals in him,” Corica told reporters.
“He’s a dangerous player once you get his confidence going and he wasn’t probably at his best today. He was just feeling a little bit sick so that’s why he came off in that second half.
“But Joe, it was nice for him to score his first goal for the club.
“They’re both dangerous players. They both can score goals and I think they showed today what they’re here for and why we brought them in.”
