North Queensland Fury intent on going back to winning ways at home
The Fury have lost their past three at home after having a decent start to the season at the venue but enough is enough according to Malik.
"We take pride in having a good record at home and lately it hasn't happened," Malik told the Townsville Bulletin ahead of Sunday's clash with Perth Glory.
"It hurts a lot. We're not looking to lose another game, we're going in with confidence and know we can get a good result."
And Malik said it was important to provide some joy for the home fans who have stuck with them since the club's inception last season.
"Our crowds are always great, they always stick behind us and give us great support, so we want to do the right thing by them and hopefully we get the three points this week," the 20-year old added.
"We owe a lot to our fans, we had a massive contingent come down to Brisbane (on the weekend) to support us which helped us a lot, and that's why we want to put in a good performance this week."
