Butcher confident Sydney FC will advance

January 29, 2007

Sydney FC coach Terry Butcher is very confident that his A-League club will account for the Newcastle Jets in the return leg of their minor semi-final on Friday in Newcastle.

The defending champions hold a 2-1 lead heading into the clash with the winner progressing to the preliminary final against either Adelaide or Melbourne.

Butcher feels the one-goal edge is a crucial advantage for his men despite having to play the second leg on the Jets' home turf.
