Colosimo confident in experienced Melbourne Heart defence

Melbourne Heart captain Simon Colosimo is confident the experienced defenders in the team can get the job done this season.

The former Sydney FC centre-half is a key member of the brand new Heart defensive formation along with Australian international Michael Beauchamp, ex-Central Coast Mariners and Huddersfield Town left-back Dean Heffernan and former Sky Blues teammate Clint Bolton and he harbours ambitions to be the best defensive unit in the A-League this season.

"I know Megzy (Beauchamp) quite well. Tonight was probably the easiest game I think the back four have played in terms of just positioning, getting things right," Colosimo said after the pre-season friendly loss to Everton last night.

"There was less and less positional errors but there is a wealth of experience with Dean (Heffernan) left side of me, Megzy next to me on the right and then big Clint Bolton behind us (in goals). I think it's a goal of ours, it's always a goal of mine to concede as least goals as possible and win that department. That's our main goal as a defence and hopefully we can do that."
