Melbourne Heart Goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne is convinced he and his teammates aren’t feeling any pressure despite not having a win on the board this season.
“ We are under pressure but I really don’t think the boys are feeling it,” commenting after the Heart’s training session this afternoon.
Redmayne has been happy with his team’s performances even though they haven’t hit the back of the net in over six hours of play.
“If you look at our performances we’ve been creating a lot of chances and looking quite solidly defensively.
“ I think we take the positives against the games we’ve played and try string a good performance against Newcastle.”
The Heart find themselves glued to the bottom of the table, with only two draws and two goals in 6 matches.
The former Brisbane Roar shot stopper does think their luck will turn around soon.
“We know it’s not far away and you only need a couple of results to go your way.
“Once we do find the back of the net it’s just gonna flow.”
Melbourne Heart take on surprise outfit Newcastle Jets who have won their last two matches and are sitting comfortably in the top 6, but Redmayne believes his side is up to the task to take down the high-flying Jets.
“Sydney and Newcastle were in similar positions to us now, and a couple of wins has them right up there.”
Heart boss John Aloisi copped much criticism at the match on Friday night against Sydney FC with fans showing there frustration towards him by chanting ‘Aloisi Out’ and holding up banners with the same message but Redmayne showed his under-pressure manager full support.
“It’s pretty tough, but we as players need to step up it’s not all the coach’s fault,” Redmayne said.
“I can’t speak for John, but I don’t think he is (feeling under pressure).
“We know the performance is good we just need to put together a 90 minute performance and the result will take care of itself.”
Melbourne Heart travel to the Hunter Valley on Sunday to take on Newcastle Jets, in what could be John Aloisi’s do or die match. Kick Off is at 5.00pm
