VIDEO: 'We deserved more' - Aloisi

Head Coach John Aloisi believes his side deserved more than a point after Melbourne Heart FC drew 2-2 with reigning A-League champions Central Coast Mariners.

Head Coach John Aloisi believes his side deserved more than a point after Melbourne Heart FC drew 2-2 with reigning A-League champions Central Coast Mariners.

“I thought we should have won that game,” Aloisi said in yesterday-s post-match press conference.

“I-m very disappointed because it was two points lost.”

Heart created more chances throughout the 90 minutes, and a second half brace from David Williams gave the Red and White a 2-0 lead before two Marco Flores penalties allowed the Mariners to earn a share of the spoils.

Despite the result, Aloisi pointed out the many positives including his side-s dangerous ability on the counter.

“We thought that we-d hurt with our pace and every time we got in behind we looked dangerous and created some really good opportunities,” Aloisi said.

“We wanted to create enough chances to win the game; they were finding it hard to deal with our players.

“They created a few opportunities but the clear cut chances were to us.”

Aloisi also singled our praise for his strikers, with Golgol Mebrahtu and Iain Ramsay drawing praise from the coach.

“We are working a lot with Gol, everyone knows he-s got a lot of ability,” Aloisi said.

“Gol can play upfront, he can play out wide and I thought he caused all types of problems.

“He and Willo [David Williams] combined well, and I thought Ramsay-s delivery was good.”

Aloisi was also delighted with Williams- performance playing as the number 10 in the absence of Club captain Harry Kewell.

“Everyone knows Willo has so much talent; it-s up to me to bring it out of him and make sure he does it week in week out,” Aloisi said.

“He can hit the ball left and right and he-s good in tight spaces. You also want him to get into the box, he-s a clinical finisher.”

Aloisi also revealed that Kewell could miss the trip to Western Australia to play against Perth Glory next week, but Michael Mifsud is set to debut after missing Heart-s first two matches with international duty.
