Perth Glory to bounce back from losing streak – Burns

Perth Glory captain Jacob Burns believes his side has the mettle to bounce back from four straight losses when they meet North Queensland Fury tomorrow night.

The hard-tackling midfielder is confident the players in the Glory squad have enough inner strength to put behind them the last four matches as well as the decision of Dave Mitchell to step down as coach during the week, making way for assistant Ian Ferguson to take over.

“They are really focused, it was a bit of a surprise for a few of the fellas but they are focused on the job at hand and you know they have worked well with Mitch (Dave Mitchell), Fergie (Ian Ferguson) and Kenny (Kenny Lowe) so it’s going to be a similar kind of feel around the camp," he said.

“They have always been heavily involved from the start and you know Fergie goes into the managers role and we are all behind him on that."

And Burns admitted it was now up to the players to turn things around on the pitch.

“We do (need to take responsibility), it just shows the desire and expectations from the club and up above and we collectively have turned in a couple of poor performances," Burns said.

"I just hope we can turn it around and go on a run the way we did at the start.

"I’ve always said along that people should judge us from where we finish not where we are sitting."
