Victory hopeful Thompson to face Perth

Melbourne Victory defender Adrian Leijer is confident Archie Thompson will return from a hamstring injury to give their side a timely boost in strike-power against Perth on Friday night.

The Socceroos forward was missed in their 2-1 loss to the Newcastle Jets on Sunday, with the Victory unable to finish off a number of chances.

Leijer is hopeful Thompson would be back as the Victory play their second in a run of five home A-League matches at AAMI Park.

"I expect him to be OK for Friday," Leijer said.

"I spoke to him before the game and he said he was touch-and-go but should be right for Friday night.

"It would be a blow if he couldn't play because he's a dangerous player so it will be good to have him back out there."

Coach Kevin Muscat's frustration was evident as the Victory pegged back level with the Jets through James Troisi only for Nathan Burns to slot his second of the match to seal the win.

Leijer, who was playing his 150th for the club, said there were no Muscat fireworks post-game, with the team still to review with match.

He said the over-riding feeling was one of frustration, with the side lacking rhythm and consistency.

The Victory are in sixth place on the A-League ladder but Leijer doesn't think they are in "must-win" territory just yet.

"Must-wins is a big call.

"In a few games this year we've probably dropped points where we shouldn't have, so four games at home now, they're important games and they are games that we want to win."
