Cirio’s goal for glory in Perth

Sergio Cirio has put the onus on himself and his fellow front men to start turning the Reds’ wealth of possession into more goal scoring opportunities.

Pint-sized Spanish forward Sergio Cirio has put the onus on himself and his fellow front men to start turning the Reds- wealth of possession into more goal scoring opportunities.

Using Assistant Coach Pau Marti as a translator, Cirio said the Reds were working hard not only to eliminate errors that cost them dearly against the Newcastle Jets last Saturday but also to continue improving the cohesion and effectiveness in the front half of the pitch.

The 28 year old, who scored over 20 times playing in Spain-s second division last season, has one goal to his name after the opening five rounds of his debut Hyundai A-League campaign, and he would like nothing more than to be in positions to add to his tally at nib Stadium against Perth on Saturday.

“We will try and improve from the mistakes that we made last week and then the players in the front third need to try to make more of a difference, make more 1v1 situations and be stronger in that area,” Cirio said.

About to start their run of three away games on the trot, Cirio is confident of an improved showing against the Glory, even if they are confronted by hot conditions at nib Stadium for the 2.30pm local time kick-off.

“It-s going to be hot but we know we have to start drinking water from now,” Cirio said.

“The team is training well and it is going to be hot for everybody so we need to get used to playing in any conditions and it will also be hot for the other team so we will be ready.”
