Nth Qld set to make changes after tough midweek match

North Queensland Fury are set to make changes for tomorrow night's match with Melbourne Victory after their tough midweek win over the Newcastle Jets.

Head coach Ian Ferguson admitted that decisions would me made prior to the team boarding a flight for Melbourne this afternoon but wanted to make sure that all the players coming down south were fit and ready for a tough slog against the league leaders.

''The boys will be doing a loosener now, they'll be away at (physiotherapist) Paul Parker's place and they'll assess everybody and we'll then make a decision on who's going to travel,'' Ferguson said.

''We're going to make a few changes, until I get the report I don't know the 15 who are going to travel but we will definitely have to freshen things up.''

Ferguson believes the quick turnaround from Tuesday to Friday is good for the players at it keeps their mind fresh on the playing side of things rather than going back to training and doing the same old things.

''It's a quick turnaround and it's a good thing for players, as an ex-player I know I'd rather go and play games than train,'' he added.

''It's an exciting time as well, because it's still mathematically possible to try and get into that top six, and it's against the champions so it's a massive game for us.''
