Western United striker Aleksandar Prijovic said fans can expect more from the team in the coming weeks after Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Western Sydney Wanderers in the Isuzu UTE A-League Men.
Prijovic’s sixth-minute goal was enough to secure the win, United’s first at home this season, moving the Green and Black to within three points of the top six.
Ghosting in unmarked at the back post, Prijovic finished off a free-flowing move with a chested finish from close range after James Troisi picked him out with a cross.
The Serbian striker said after a difficult start to the campaign, the reigning Isuzu UTE A-League Champions are beginning to show their true form.
“It’s getting better and better from game to game. We are just now starting to show our true game style and value, and I think in the next weeks we will be much better than even today,” he said.
“It was definitely a very important win. After last week’s defeat we had to show the right reaction and get the win. Now we work harder for the next games and get back into the race.
“This was also the first time we kept a clean sheet. We didn’t concede in the first half, we stayed focused from the first minute which was very important. Today is a sweet victory, 1-0 – I think we deserve it.”
Prijovic’s goal is his second in the league this season after his instant impact off the bench against Wellington Phoenix in his first appearance of the campaign in November.
The strike is also the No.99’s third in as many games against Western Sydney, with United now winning each of those last three meetings against Marko Rudan’s side.
United’s talisman will look to kick on and continue finding the back of the net in the coming weeks as John Aloisi’s side seeks to go on a run of results to climb up the table.
