“It’s about what we believe in” – Corica

Despite plenty of outside pressure on the club, Steve Corica has backed his playing squad to get the job done on Monday night in Brisbane which will put his side firmly into the finals football drivers seat.

After stumbling in weeks prior with a squad that was heavy on the injury list, the Sydney FC Head Coach has practically a full squad at his disposal and is beginning to reap the rewards.

Sydney FC have rallied after a dip in form and appear to be matching some of their best performances.

“I’ve never doubted the ability of the players.

“I don’t bother too much about outside people, it is about what we can do, what we believe in and what we can achieve this season,” Corica said.

“We’re not where we really want to be but the key now is to get into the top six.”

This season, the Sky Blues have had impressive performances but then in other weeks have failed to create many opportunities and dropped points.

“I think on our day we have shown that we can beat any team so we’re not afraid of anyone but we have to play well to win games,” the Head Coach said.

“We know that every game until now and the end of the season is practically like a Grand Final for us.

“We have to treat it like that and we have to believe that we can win every game.”

With only two matches remaining, Sydney FC will be looking to take maximum points starting with Monday night in Brisbane before playing their final home game against Newcastle Jets.

“We want to win our next two games.

“It’s not that we want to just get into the six, we want to finish as high as possible and continue the form that we’ve shown recently,” he added.

The win won’t come easy for the Sky Blues with the Roar also fighting for those remaining finals spots with a new coach at the helm.

The meeting at Allianz Stadium earlier this season ended a 1-1 draw

“They’re [Brisbane Roar] are a team that never give up, especially at home. They play some good football and they’re very hard to beat at home.

“Everyone is pushing for that top six and they are one of those sides capable of making the top half, so they’ll give it a real crack up there,” Corica said.

“I think the game at home we created a lot of chances against them but we didn’t get the win. We need to take it to the next step and get the win up there.”

With so much on the line, we can expect a tense evening of football in Queensland when top six places go on the line.
