Watson confident of a result against Heart

There is always something special about going back to play a game in your home town and it is no different for Cameron Watson as he prepares to face the Heart.

There is always something special about going back to play a game in your home town and it is no different for Cameron Watson as he prepares to face the Heart.

Currently on a five game winning run, Melbourne Heart are currently the prized scalp in the Hyundai A-League and Watson believes there is plenty for them and the Reds to play for tomorrow.

“At the start of the season they didn-t get off to the best of starts but they-ve won five in a row and they-re just confident at the moment, they-re on a role,” Watson said of the Heart

“But we-ve been doing well at training, we had a draw in Sydney and a win on the weekend so we-re up to it as well and we-re going to go there full of confidence that we can get a result.”

“They (Melbourne) want to get on more of a role, they want to keep that finals spot alive and we want to get into the top six, so I think it-s going to be a good game.”

Set to make his third consecutive start and seventh of the season, Watson is looking forward to the challenge of toppling Melbourne Heart, particularly as a number of his family and friends are expected to be in the stands at AAMI Park.

Born in Melbourne, Watson came through the Victorian Institute of Sport before moving on to the AIS, which was followed by stints in Portugal and Holland. He returned home in 2007 and signed with Melbourne Knights in the Victorian Premier League, a competition he spent four seasons in before Adelaide United came knocking while he was at the Oakleigh Cannons.

Fast forward nearly 18 months and Watson has racked up 39 Hyundai A-League appearances for the Reds and become an important member of the squad. One thing missing in his time at the club so far is a debut goal, but with his contingent of family and friends set to be watching on, the stage might be set for Watson to break his duck.
