Wanderers ‘not giving up’ after another draw

Western Sydney Wanderers defender Jack Clisby says his side remain confident despite registering their eighth draw of the campaign on Sunday night.

Wanderers came back from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Perth Glory in their Round 13 clash at ANZ Stadium.

The result maintained Wanderers’ toehold on a top six spot, though if the Jets win against Victory on Monday night, they will leapfrog Wanderers in sixth and push them down to seventh.

But Clisby felt his side should’ve taken more than a point from the clash with Kenny Lowe’s men and believes his side can and will come good. 

Glory fullback Josh Risdon challenges for the ball with Wanderers Captain Dimas.

“Especially with the chances we had in the first half, we should’ve put them away,” he told Fox Sports.

“But in the second half we came out and played a good 80% of the game in their half.

“And we really pinned them back, but it wasn’t to be.”

This was Wanderers’ eighth draw in 13 games and the main reason why the club are in a battle for fifth and sixth with the top four sides starting to edge clear of the chasing pack.

And Clisby isn’t shying away from the stat.

“It doesn’t lie, the results … we still haven’t won a game at home. But we’re not going to give up. We’re going to keep going and we believed we’d get a result today.

“But it wasn’t to be and we showed great character to come back yet again.” 

Wanderers next face City in a huge Round 14 clash in Melbourne this Friday night.
