North Queensland’s Agius hoping for positive homecoming against Adelaide
North Queensland Fury midfielder Fred Agius is hoping his return to South Australia is fruitful for his club.
The 25-year old Adelaide-born Agius has been unable to fight his way into the Fury’s first team but after three losses in a row, he is eyeing a place in Ian Ferguson’s team for the clash with the Reds at Hindmarsh Stadium on Friday night.
I had to leave home to get an A-League contract, and being from Adelaide, I really want to play this game,'' said Agius.
“I really want to be playing every week. It was a bit of a shock when I wasn't picked at the start of the season.
“I've got to make sure when I do get my chance, I don't let it slip.''
Agius believes it is a good time to notch up the club’s first win as Adelaide are likely to be vulnerable following two losses on the trot.
“We're catching them at a good time because their confidence could be down after losing two in a row,'' he added.
