Jets eager to break Perth drought

"We are going to stick it to them, we are not going to let them dictate the game," says Griffiths

With the Jets having not won over in Perth for six years, striker Ryan Griffiths says the team are very keen to break the curse as they did in Brisbane three weeks ago when they defeated the defending champions 1-nil.

“It is always difficult when we travel away and it is something we have to deal with mentally and we have to ride into this game with the confidence we have coming off three straight wins,” the 30-year-old said.

“We are going into Saturday-s game like any other and we are going to stick it to them, we are not going to let them dictate the game and hopefully with this confidence we will get a result which will be brilliant.”

Not only will a win in Perth break the drought for the Jets it will also push the team into fourth position and ahead of Glory.

“We are taking each game step by step, the league is very close is season and nobody is guaranteed a spot in the six,” Griffiths explained.

“We could climb up to second if Wellington struggle in the next few weeks but saying that, you can drop out of the six easily so we have to keep our heads straight and get results when we are away.
