Glory's best to come says positive Pellegrino

Glory midfielder Adriano Pellegrino said a little soul searching from the playing group this week will be a positive thing as the club looks to turn its season around with a win at home on Sunday.

Glory midfielder Adriano Pellegrino said a little soul searching from the playing group this week will be a positive thing as the club looks to turn its season around with a win at home on Sunday.

While acknowledging Perth-s performance against Queensland was well below par, Pellegrino was confident the errors that have cost the team dearly this season can be rectified.

"We are going to sit down in the next couple of days, a few words spoken and try and crack down on the mistakes we have made," Pellegrino said.

"They're mistakes we will go over and work through, it a healthy thing.

“I-m sure that we can iron out the silly errors and produce a good performance against Wellington this weekend,” he said.

Pellegrino has been a consistent performer for Perth after joining the club this season from South Australian side Metro Stars. While it is his first season in the west the tenacious midfielder said he understands the frustration of local supporters and applauded their passion and loyalty which the team was desperate to reward.

"We've got to definitely focus and pick our heads up from here," Pellegrino said.

"The supporters are going to be very disappointed in us, especially losing at home, but I think we can definitely fix our mistakes that we've made.

“Hopefully everyone sees a bit of faith in us and comes back out on Sunday and we get up and get a win.

"We can show not just our supporters here in Perth but Australia-wide that we are a decent side,” he said.

With ten new faces in the Glory side this season the squad is still getting to know each other but Pellegrino said that was no excuse for lapses in concentration.

"There was a bit of a clean-out from last year and it does take a bit of time to get to know each other, and the way we all play, but that's no excuse.

“Everyone's played at this level before and you've got to be bigger and stronger than that and move on," he said.

A crucial weekend looms for Perth with a win against the Phoenix at Members Equity Stadium not only moving them off the foot of the table but also proving their hard work on the training track can produce positive results.

"Yesterday was very important but this week is going to be even more important,” said Pellegrino.

“We definitely feel that we can be a much better side than what we-ve shown so far and this weekend we-ll go in feeling positive that we can make it all click together,” he said.
