We must play our game, says ACE Striker ahead of Stormers Clash
ACE have had to work hard for their last two victories – and it will not be any easier tomorrow night according to David Park.
Centenary Stormers arrive at Wolter Park (kick-off 6pm) unbeaten and third on the Premier League, one below ACE, who have a perfect record from three games.
The Darra-based side is also high on confidence after thrashing QPL side Holland Park 7-1 in the FFA Cup this week. Joseph Kleibo scored a hat-trick.
But striker David Park, who has scored twice in three league games this season, said it’s important ACE focus on their game – not the opposition.
“I have seen highlights (of Stormers),” he said, “they have good players upfront and midfield. Good players. We need to work hard.
“I think we (have to) play the right way. We need to focus on what we’ve done until now and try to play our game.
“Keep possession, move the ball quickly. I think we are are good like that, but need to make more chances and score more goals. (At the moment) We just score two or one goals a game.”
Park has been pushed forward this season from his usual attacking midfield, number 10, role and paired up front with Youngnam Kim (Lio).
“I think I’m playing alright. With Lio, we still getting to know how to play with each other, but we’re getting more comfortable,” he said.
“I don’t mind who I play with. Steve (Glockner) wants me to play upfront with Lio. I’m happy with that.
“I like it. It’s good experience for me. I look to score more goals and crosses and get more wins for my team.”
Stormers leapt up two divisions during the sumnmer restructure after winning Capital league 2 last season. This season they have beaten Mt Gravatt and Virginia and drawn with Taringa and North Pine.
ACE Reserves, who are fourth on their ladder, host Centenary Stormers Reserves, who are third, at Wolter Park at 3.45pm.
