Brook discusses his own and team’s form ahead of Macarthur clash

Lachlan Brook spoke to the media on Tuesday discussing the Reds’ recent form as well as his own, his loan spell in Adelaide, and facing Macarthur FC on Friday night.

The Reds are winless in their past four games and need to rebound in order to keep alive hopes of a top-six finish.

Brook on team returning back to its best…

“For me I think the games that we’ve been playing, obviously other than the Central Coast game which was unfortunate, I think we’ve been putting in some real good performances.

“Everyone can sort of see that when we’re out on the park but I think for us it’s the goal-scoring that’s been our biggest problem.

“In terms of dominating games, we’ve been on top.”

Brook on the need to be more clinical…

“At the end of the day scoring goals is the hardest part of the game.

“Which is why there’s so little of them, so I think it’s a number of things.

“I think confidence is a massive thing and scoring goals let alone most things with football.

“We’ve had a few interruptions, we’ve had Hiroshi (Ibusuki) scoring goals then he gets Covid and that sort of does break momentum.

“I think once we find it as a team it’s one of those things that’ll just keep happening so I think for sure confidence is one of the biggest things.”

Brook on his performance against Melbourne Victory and enjoying loan spell…

“I’m feeling good.

“Getting in some good performances which is obviously the reason I’m here.

“I think I said it when I came, I’m here to play games and really develop myself as a player.

“So the fact that I’m doing well and helping out the team as much as I can, I’m really happy with it.”

Brook on Macarthur and picking up wins…

“It’s getting now to that point end of the table where we spoke about we were in third place, but the other teams are starting to catch up with those games.

“I think for us a win and for the rest of the games, wins are absolutely vital.

“So we’re just focused on now obviously the Friday game and the Tuesday game (against Sydney FC) so they’re must win games.”
