VIDEO: Audience with Ange - Round Two

Ange Postecoglou says his side is solely focused on toppling an in-form Adelaide United this Friday night, with skipper Mark Milligan also set to return to the side.

Ange Postecoglou says his side is solely focused on toppling an in-form Adelaide United this Friday night, with skipper Mark Milligan also set to return to the side.

Speaking after training before flying west, Postecoglou said his squad was keen to improve on its first outing last week, a 0-0 draw against cross-town rivals Heart.

Press play on the video above to hear Postecoglou talk about selection for Friday night, Socceroos speculation and more.

While a large media gathering asked plenty of questions on the speculation linking Postecoglou's name to the Socceroos coaching position, Postecoglou said his mind was focused on bringing three points back from Adelaide.

"My gut is telling me we've got a game tomorrow night that I'm desperate to win and that's what my head is telling me as well - that's totally where my focus is right now," Postecoglou said.

"I don't think it (Socceroos coach) is a position you should lobby for, if the powers that be find it in their wisdom to offer me the position, it would be a great honour."

Postecoglou said there was likely to be two changes to his side for this week's clash, with captain Mark Milligan returning to the side in place of Rashid Mahazi and young defender Nick Ansell coming in for marquee man Pablo Contreras, who will miss the next two weeks following his round one suspension.

"We were a bit disappointed with the way we played last week," he said.

"It was a pretty frustrating night and we couldn't break them down. It looked like we'd both had five months off and hopefully that gets rectified this week.

"There was still enough good stuff there, our general play was good, we just lacked a real cutting edge and that's something we need to fix."
