Nichols confident of A-League victory

Melbourne Victory's new midfield man Mitch Nichols is brimming with confidence ahead of the upcoming A-League clash with old rivals Adelaide.

"If we stick to our structure, be disciplined and play the way we want to play, I don't see us having a problem on Saturday night," Nichols said on Tuesday.

Recalling the early-season fixture in Adelaide, where the Victory clawed back a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2, Nichols said a couple of bad decisions prevented the Victory winning "four or five nil".

"We want to get one back over them," he added.

It's no doubt music to the ears of the Victory faithful, who have seen Adelaide as their chief rivals since the two competed for early championships.

Nichols has formed a deadly partnership with fellow off-season recruit and A-League leading scorer James Troisi.

The two sit just behind the strikers in a feature of Victory's formation devised by recently departed coach Ange Postecoglou.

After being poached from the Roar by his two-time champion coach to AAMI Park, Nichols now finds himself under the tutelage of Kevin Muscat.

After two losses from two trips to Sydney, Muscat is looking to avoid three in a row against the Reds at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night.
