Improvement needed, says City keeper

MELBOURNE City goalkeeper Eugene Galekovic says the team can only get better after last week's tight loss to A-League leaders Sydney FC.

City went down 1-0 on last Friday for a first defeat of the campaign and will look to get back to winning ways at AAMI Park tomorrow against Sydney's other team the Wanderers.

Galekovic said the team had showed good signs so far but needed to progress.

"I think we've been good in large patches, we don't give teams too many chances and it's been a massive benefit,” Galekovic said.

"We want to progress that in being a good team and scoring goals, which we are.

"I think we'll only get better, a lot of the boys are good players that can come in and do a job so I think there is a long way to go.”

Tomorrow will be new coach Josep Gombau's first game in charge of the visitors but Galekovic, who played under the Spaniard in Adelaide, said the Sydney side's style of play would not change too much.

"In terms of personnel, he might change a few people around and bring players in but we'll just play our own game and do our own job,” he said.

"Their No.9 (Oriol Riera) is scoring, their defence is good, the midfield keeps the ball as well so we have to be on our game to get the win and that's what this week is there for. Whatever they throw at us we're ready.”
