Kewell return a boost for Heart: Aloisi

Melbourne Heart coach John Aloisi says the return of star recruit Harry Kewell from injury has given his side a major confidence boost following their shocking run of form.

Bottom-placed Heart secured an unlikely 1-1 draw against second-placed Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday for their second point in a row, having snapped a five-match losing streak the previous week.

While the Heart are still winless a third of the way through the season, Aloisi says he can now see the light at the end of the tunnel in part due to the return of Kewell following an eight-week absence.

"It was a big positive," Aloisi said of Kewell's 20-minute appearance as a second-half substitute against the Wanderers.

"We know what Harry can do and he just lifts everybody around him.(Him) walking out onto that pitch, his teammates lift. That's the reason we got him at our club.

"The game turned for a good 10 minutes where he started keeping the ball. All the other players around him seemed to lift with confidence as well and we started to combine and play some good combination football.

"Harry brings that to a team and we have a couple of other players to come back too.

"Whether we can play him longer than 20 minutes next week, hopefully we can. Whether he starts I still have question marks. We don't want him to break down again."

Melbourne Heart's raw statistics make for shocking reading with the club on a 14-match winless run, leading to conjecture about Aloisi's tenure at the club.

Their away record is even more unimpressive having now failed to win outside Melbourne in over 18 matches dating back to October 2012.

Aloisi, however, says last weekend's drama-charged 3-3 draw against Adelaide United was a defining moment for the embattled club.

"We believe that last week's second half was a turning point for our season," he said.

"A few weeks ago we probably would have lost (against the Wanderers) considering the amount of possession (they had) and they way they pressured us.

"But we held on and showed some good signs especially when Harry came on."
