Structure to stay the same, says Muscat

VICTORY coach Kevin Muscat has stuck by his team's style of play despite a pair of frustrating winless results in the past two rounds.

The Victory dominated possession away to Central Coast in their round 8 A-League clash and at home to Newcastle last Sunday, but was held to a 0-0 draw in Gosford, before going down 2-1 at AAMI Park.

Muscat, who does not have a central striker in his 4-2-4 formation, said: "I'm not interested in changing the current structure. The structure has brought us some very attractive and good football."

Forward Archie Thompson (hamstring, pictured), who missed the loss to the Jets, should return for the visit from Perth tonight, with Connor Pain likely to make way. Muscat revealed Jason Geria would come into the team at right-back.

The Victory has taken four points from a possible 15 since Muscat took over last month.
