Queenslander Alex Parsons came off the bench on Saturday afternoon against his former club Brisbane Roar to score a stoppage time equaliser but the attacker sees good signs in the team as a whole.
Sydney FC dominated the contest, having 20 shots and creating four big chances but Jordan Holmes and the rest of the Roar defenders were stretching every sinue to keep a clean sheet until Parsons popped up late on to give Steve Corica’s side a deserved equaliser.
And after scoring that late goal, Alex Parsons wants to build on his goal-den moment.
“All anyone wants to do is be playing, that’s everyone’s goal.
“So far I’ve been doing my role in the team and bits here and there, so hopefully from here I can get more minutes and continue to contribute,” Parsons said.
Parsons has found the minutes tough to come by since his arrival at the club, with the likes of Joe Lolley and Robert Mak holding down a spot on the wing and after he made his first appearance since November, the 23 year old sees this as an opportunity to progress as a team.
“I think in the first 25, 30 minutes we were really good, and their goal came against the run of play.
“It’s obviously disappointing to end up with a draw but we’ll take it,” said Parsons.
“We keep moving forward, undefeated in four now, so it’s a good sign and we can build on that.”
The next challenge for Steve Corica’s side is a trip to top of the table Melbourne City at AAMI Park and Alex Parsons will be hoping to make his mark in that fixture with nine games remaining in the season.
