Mulvey looks for positives

December 22, 2012 11:56:21 UK

Caretaker coach Mike Mulvey is trying to stay upbeat after defeat in his first game in charge of Brisbane Roar.

We need to get our mojo back.

The two-time defending champions, who last week ditched Rado Vidosic as their coach, failed to turn second-half domination into goals as they lost 1-0 at home to Perth Glory.

Don't forget all of the fantastic markets we have to offer, including In-Play betting, can be accessed on your mobile phone and tablet with the new and improved bet365 On The Move.

But Mulvey believes there is the right kind of spirit in the dressing rooms, and that the club can turn their season around.

The Roar have just three wins from 12 games this season, and sit just one point above bottom club Sydney FC and Mulvey, who is charge until the end of the season, has tipped his team to bounce back against Adelaide United on Boxing Day.

The Reds are arguably the team Brisbane would pick to play at this stage of the campaign, given that they have just been hammered 6-1 by competition new boys Western Sydney Wanderers.

Mulvey says confidence is an issue at the club, but that can change thanks to the character of the players.

"You might take a bit extra on a pass when you're playing a ball, when you're receiving it you might take that extra touch," Mulvey said.

"We need to get our mojo back and losing doesn't help but what does help is the character of the players I've got in the dressing room.

"I'm thankful of that and I know with them, along with myself, we'll work very hard to rectify it."

Mulvey says the secret to the Roar snaring a win over the Reds on Wednesday is a simple one.

"We need positive energy, positive attitudes, positive enthusiasm right through the club," he said.

"This club is united. We're looking to build on things ... the quality of players, they will come good, there's absolutely no doubt in my mind."

Young defender Jack Hingert is a slight doubt after suffering a hip injury that forced him off the field late in the clash with the Glory.

Brisbane Roar are 15.00 to win the A-League title, with the Central Coast Mariners 3.00.
