Colosimo: Heart luck missing

Melbourne Heart captain Simon Colosimo insists a little bit of luck is all it will take to turn around the fortunes of his side after a winless first month of the season.

Melbourne Heart captain Simon Colosimo insists a little bit of luck is all it will take to turn around the fortunes of his side after a winless first month of the season.

The Heart have two points from their first four games and were extremely unlucky not to have opened their win account last Sunday when Perth needed a controversial late penalty to snatch a 2-2 draw at AAMI Park.

The first goal Perth scored in that match came courtesy of a deflection from unlucky defender Michael Marrone, compounding a frustrating day for the Hyundai A-League's new boys.

While it may seem that nothing is falling Heart's way in the luck stakes, Colosimo and his team remain positive that things will change and that debut win is just around the corner if those little errors are weeded out of their game.

"It seems that every time we make a little mistake or let our guard down we seem to be conceding goals or getting punished. That's the nature of the A-League, you can-t afford to make mistakes anywhere on the pitch, because you will get punished," he said.

"I think we're moving forward, we are scoring some really good goals. We are moving the ball around. I think we're creating our chances. We just need to knuckle down and cut those little things out. I think that's sport, when things aren't happening and there's a little mistake."

"All we need is that game where we don-t make mistakes. Defensively, we'll pick up our three points and we are up and running. All will be forgotten."

Heart came into the competition with a string of high-profile recruits, including Colosimo himself, and a promise of attacking football. But at the moment, the end is not justifying the means for the boys in red and white stripes.

But the skipper has every faith that things are on the right path and that the first win could come as soon as Saturday's clash with North Queensland at AAMI Park.

"Everyone expects to win games. We're disappointed with the points we've got on the board, but we're not disappointed with the process with the way we are doing things, and going about it. We think we are well on the right track," he said

However, he has every respect in what Franz Straka has brought to the Fury this season and is not surprised North Queensland have had such a strong start to the campaign given the similarities between the Fury coach and Colosimo's former boss at Sydney, Vitezslav Lavicka.

"I always thought that North Queensland were going to be good this year. If (Straka) brings to North Queensland any of the philosophies that Lavicka brought to Sydney then they are going to be very competitive," he said.

"It's a pure belief. Working hard and working as a team. If you watch North Queensland they are so organised. Everybody works for each other and they've just got a really good group of boys."
