Duo return, Jets back to full strength

 

MORETON Bay United will be back to full strength on Sunday (March 29) for their PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland top-versus-bottom clash with Brisbane City at Wolter Park, kick-off 6pm.

Jets have defender Jacob Mitchell and midfielder Liam Previtera returning to the line-up after missing last week's trip to Toowoomba. Captain Royce Brownlie is also fully fit again after illness.

All three will give the 20-man squad a timely boost as it looks to extend the league’s only perfect record - and stay in top spot.

Jets retained top spot, although now on goal difference from Western Pride, despite their match against SW Queensland Thunder being abandoned after 22 minutes due to adverse weather conditions.

Brisbane City, by contrast, has just one point from four games. But it's a run Jets’ coach Adam Piddick is quick to dismiss.

“City have too many good players to stay in that position,” said Piddick, “they have had a difficult start, but that makes every game huge for them. I have no doubt they will come to Wolter Park firing.”

Similarly, the Jets’ coach is taking nothing for granted in his side's three victories in the first three games.

“I don’t pay too much attention to the table,” he said, “we still have a long way to go. Unless we keep working hard and building upon this. A good start will win nothing.”

Four of Jets' senior squad have close links to Brisbane City. Adam Piddick and defender Scott Stewart played there in 2013, goalkeeper Luke Borean and midfielder Daniel Clark in 2014.
