Allsopp happy with state of Melbourne Victory attacking line

Returning Melbourne Victory striker Danny Allsopp believes the side can cause a few problems for opposition teams in the A-League finals series.

The 32-year old has enjoyed a successful comeback with the Victory, scoring five goals in eight matches after stints in Qatar with Al-Rayyan and in the USA with DC United, and says the attacking power of the two-time A-League champions has them in with a strong chance for an unprecedented third title.

"It's great, we've got a lot of attacking options," Allsopp told foxsports.com.au.

"It's good to be back. The way the Victory try to play football suits me.

"We play a dynamic style or we try to most of the time, and it's an enjoyable way to play.

"It's great to have Archie (Thompson) up front with me as well; we'll try to renew our partnership again.

"Obviously Robbie (Kruse) is there too, Carlos (Hernandez) and Tommy (Pondeljak).

"So we have a lot of attacking players."

And after a layoff of a few months following the 2010 MLS season with DC, Allsopp says he is now feeling fairly fit and match sharp ahead of Sunday's elimination final with Gold Coast United at Skilled Park.

"I was just surviving through my first seven games (after coming back from holidays)," he added.

"I'm actually feeling pretty match fit now and in good shape and looking forward to this week's game."
