Looking forward, not back – Brattan

Luke Brattan is confident Sydney FC can take all the points at Coopers Stadium on Friday – despite Adelaide United being the Isuzu UTE A-League’s in-form team.

Adelaide on Friday night is a notoriously tough place to play at with the fans creating a hostile atmosphere, however the Sydney FC midfielder knows what his side are capable of.

“It’s going to be a tough test but if we can go there and get a result it is huge for our confidence and will put us in a good spot going into finals.

“As football players you want to play in the big games and play in front of big crowds,” Brattan added.

The midfielder in focusing ahead to the remaining games of the season is not worried about the past results heading into this one.

“It’s all about the next game.

“I know it’s cliché but we’re in this position where we are fighting for finals and and that is on us as players to get the club into finals where we belong.”

Luke Brattan has achieved a lot in Australian football and knows the levels that his side are capable of reaching, but sometimes haven’t quite matched.

“We know that when we are on, we’re a very good team,” he said.

“We’ve got very good players and once it clicks, we will be very hard to beat and it’s about getting that chemistry and putting solid performances together.

“We need to go back to basics and clean sheets are a must. If we don’t concede goals we are more than likely going to score goals with the talent that we have.

“If the attitude is spot on and the preparation continues to be good, then on our day we can beat anyone,” Brattan concluded.

With Adelaide chasing top spot, they will be a tough nut to crack and if Sydney can prove their worth, they will be hopeful of maintaining that form for the remaining matches.
