Head Coach John van ‘t Schip said he was able to draw positives from the weekend-s match with Adelaide United as the Club extended its unbeaten streak to three.

After failing to claim a win during the opening two matches of the campaign, Heart has made a distinct leap forward in recent weeks following improved displays against cross town rivals Victory, Sydney FC and the Reds.

However, despite the upturn in form, Heart remains winless, leaving van ‘t Schip and his team with little to show for their improved displays.

“Until then (the red card and goal) we were doing well ... and defensively Simon (Colosimo) was playing well with Matt (Thompson)," van 't Schip said.

"The first half in particular, we were disciplined in defence and had some quick breaks, but we lacked the final pass and our shots were either at the goalkeeper or wide."

"Even after with 10 men we were doing well and creating some dangerous breaks and defending with everything we had."

"I think all the play we showed especially in the second half was getting better and better."

The team will resume training on Monday ahead of the Club-s match with Newcastle Jets at AAMI Park.
