The North Queensland Fury defence is on the improve according to goalkeeper Justin Pasfield.

Saturday’s clean sheet against the Melbourne Victory was the first for the Fury in 11 A-League matches and the 25-year old feels it may be a turning point for the Townsville club.

"We are just getting better and better at the back," he told the Townsville Bulletin.

"The shape and structure things that we are working on a lot are starting to look good.<>
"For me not to have a helluva lot to do, other than make one save and (Mark) Hughes coming round to save my butt is a big positive.

"I can't criticise anyone that was in front of me.

"We are starting to get rid of that leaky defence and get rid of those silly goals we have copped."

But Pasfield knows in order to win games, goals must be scored at the other end.

"It's frustrating more than anything," Pasfield said of the lack of goals being scored.

"If we keep cleansheets it's up to the rest of the guys to capitalise."
