Geria: ‘no panic’ ahead of Western Sydney trip

Victory defender Jason Geria spoke to media on Tuesday morning ahead of the team’s trip to Western Sydney to face the Wanderers on Wednesday night.

Victory have lost their last two league matches since winning the FFA Cup Final last week, giving the mid-week clash added importance to keep pace with those at the top of the table.

Geria on Victory’s last match…

“We’re disappointed with the weekend’s result because we had control of the game going into half-time 1-0 up and playing really well.

“I don’t think we were fully rewarded for the opportunities we were creating and the football we were playing.

“But there’s no panic. There’s a lot of football to be played and we know what we’re capable of when we’re playing at our best.”

On how the team is performing…

“This Club has had an overhaul. There’s so many new players playing together for the first time, so it did take a bit of time to get everyone working together but people have seen what we’re capable of at our best.

“With more time, those periods are going to get longer, our performances will get better, and results will follow.

“We’ve been playing some good football, but I think we’ve got a lot more to give and a lot to improve.

“The sky’s the limit. I’m hopeful of what we can achieve this season.”

On facing the Wanderers tomorrow night…

“They’re a team with a lot of quality, a lot of very good players. We’re not going to take them lightly or make any assumptions that it will be an easy match.

“Western Sydney away is always hard. We know they can be dangerous, so we must be cautious, but will go over there with the mindset of getting three points.”
