“We are one of the most dangerous teams in the league” – Courtney-Perkins

Jordan speaks to the press ahead of the clash with Newcastle Jets

Jordan Courtney-Perkins says Sydney FC are happy to take on all-comers as the Sky Blues prepare to take on Newcastle Jets on Sunday.

The Sky Blues have been in impressive form lately, losing only once in their last 10 matches – and they managed to secure a point against Perth Glory on Wednesday night despite playing 60 minutes with ten men.

With all these factors building up, the Sky Blues are peaking at the right time and Courtney-Perkins knows that many teams will not want to face Ufuk Talay’s Sydney FC right now.

“You’ve seen it in the last Derby and against Central Coast, that when we click and put those processes together it really shows that we are hard to beat.

“We are probably one of the most dangerous teams in the league,” he said.

“Teams versing us probably think that we are a scary opposition to face and I think that is a good reputation to have.”

Jordan Courtney-Perkins will depart for Qatar after Sunday having been selected in the Olyroos squad for the AFC U23 Asian Cup.

He will leave his team-mates to do the work in his absence with three regular season games remaining.

Courtney-Perkins will miss the Sydney Derby, the away clash with Macarthur and potentially the final home game against Perth Glory at Allianz Stadium depending on the Olyroos’ progress at the tournament.

With Jake Girdwood-Reich also in the Olyroos squad, they will be watching from afar but know the importance of the Sky Blues’ remaining matches.

“We need to take it game by game and we don’t want to look too far into the future because there’s four games to go and that’s a potential 12 points to pick up.

“If we just focus game by game and continue putting in performances that we are proud of, then the results will come,” he said.

“if we focus on ourselves and focus on how we’re going to play and if we perform like we have on the training park and in games for the last two months, then we are a hard team to beat and teams will be afraid of us rather us having to worry about them.”
