Perth Glory captain Burns: We are still positive despite losing streak

Perth Glory captain Jacob Burns says the mood amongst the playing group is still very positive despite three losses in a row.

The Western Australian outfit were flying high with three wins and two draws from their first five matches before going on a losing streak but Burns is of firm belief that they are playing good football and will return to the winners list against the Brisbane Roar this weekend.

'There has been an extremely positive mood in the camp this week, despite our failure to win for the third week in a row,' Burns wrote in his column for inmycommunity.

'Against Adelaide, I thought we played some of our best football for the season, only to be denied twice in the first half by world- class saves from Reds keeper Eugene Galekovic.

'Had either Robbie Fowler or Michael Baird had a touch of luck, the result could have been a lot sweeter. The fact is, though we came back from Adelaide without a point, we took the game up to the league leaders.

'We're confident we're on track to return to our winning ways against Brisbane Roar this Sunday at Perth Oval.'
