REDMAYNE: “We needed that killer edge to put those chances away”


Melbourne City FC goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne was positive about his side’s performance on Sunday evening, saying the issues that arose from the 2-2 draw with Mariners are easily fixed.

Melbourne City FC were dominant for 80 minutes of the match, spurning a host of opportunities in the second half to put the result beyond doubt, but Redmayne felt that creating chances was the first step to success.

“I thought we created a lot of chances,” Redmayne said.

“So many one-on-ones, a lot of scoring opportunities. I thought we were defensively good for 85 minutes and it was a solid team performance all round.”

Melbourne City FC saw a two-goal lead slip in the second half but the custodian felt that if his side were clinical in the final third, there wouldn’t be an issues with his team’s performance.

“I think we had 19 shots on the weekend and that’s fantastic,” Redmayne said.

“It’s just we need that killer edge to put those chances away and the game would have been dead and buried.”

The focus now shifts to Saturday night’s match with Sydney FC and Melbourne City FC’s goalkeeper said the Round 1 encounter between the sides was still fresh on their minds.

“I thought we dominated large spells in the game, particularly in the first half (vs Sydney FC)” Redmayne said.

“We can take a lot of positives with the game we had in round one.”
