Melbourne Victory Head Coach Kevin Muscat isn’t dwelling on Wednesday’s loss against Wellington, instead focusing on bouncing back against Perth Glory on Saturday night.
The significance of the home game against Glory is not lost on Muscat, as his team prepares for a tough match.
“It’ll be a difficult game for us, we’ll respect the opposition but more than anything we’ll concentrate on ourselves and making sure that we recover well.”

After the short turn-around, Muscat’s men have been concentrating on getting their bodies and minds right to play a competitive brand of football tomorrow night.
“The focus at the moment is on preparation, getting ourselves right physically and, just as importantly, mentally to get ourselves ready for a competition tomorrow night where we want to perform well.”
This week’s match holds an added incentive for Victory to get the win, with Leigh Broxham set to make his 250th A-League appearance for the club.
“He’ll have to be assessed also, but rest assured we will pick the team that we think is going to give us the best chance at being successful.”
Broxham is humbled by the experiences he has had in his time at the club and acknowledges the significance of his achievement.
“You dream of being a footballer and having a long career but how it pans out, you don’t dream about it like that. I’m very lucky to be able to play football here.”
