Marco Kurz isn't getting carried away after watching his side move impressively into the last eight of the Westfield FFA Cup with a 3-0 win over Melbourne Victory.
Adelaide United’s new coach was keeping his feet on the ground.
JUST ANOTHER STEP FOR KURZ’S REDS
“We still have a lot of work [to do] in the next six weeks,” Kurz told Fox Sports.
“We saw tonight we can play well against one of the two best teams in the league.
“We controlled the second half and the whole team improved.
“Today is good and the win is good, but tomorrow we have training and we start again,” he said.
SECOND HALF STEP-UP PAYS DIVIDENDS
The tie was scoreless at the break, before second half goals to Johan Absalonsen, George Blackwood and Nathan Konstandopoulos gave the Reds a comfortable win.
“I think we were the better team over the whole 90 minutes,” Kurz declared.
“In the first 25 minutes, we dropped back too much.
“We changed things and put more pressure on the ball.
“The team did a great job – my congratulations to the team.
“It's a big win today.”
FANS REVEL IN REDS REVIVAL
Over 3000 fans turned up at Marsden Sports Complex to watch Adelaide United keep another clean sheet in what has been an impressive start under their new boss.
“Before the game, we said we would do our best for our supporters,” said Kurz.
“We gave them a successful game and it's a good night tonight.”
