In a league as tight as the Hyundai A-League every match is crucial and young Sydney FC striker Corey Gameiro knows that for the Sky Blues to consolidate their finals credentials maximum points have to be attained from the remaining four matches.

Fifth plays sixth on Friday night when the Sky Blues take on Adelaide United at Coopers Stadium (kick off 7pm local time) and Gameiro is drawing on past results with the Reds as motivation to push forward and claim the three points in South Australia.

“This game is so important for both teams,” Gameiro said.

“If you look at how close the table is for both of us it-s huge.

“I-m expecting a dog fight really. Every game we play now is a grand final; we want to win it, we want to be just as competitive in everything.

“We-re going over there with the intention of getting a win and nothing else. As for the previous loss and the draw that-s just motivation really. That just motivates us more.”

Gameiro holds a strong goal-scoring record against the Reds however the Young Socceroo is not concerned with personal accolades and just wants to return home with the three points.

“It was good to get my first goal for Sydney there,” Gameiro said.

“My first ever goal in the A-League when I was at Wellington happened there as well, so my record against Adelaide is pretty good.

“For me it-s not about me going out and getting the goal it-s about whoever scores, we want to win as a team.

“As long as someone puts the ball over the line and in the back of the net and we win I-ll be going home on the plane happy.”

This away game is The Cove-s National Service round, with a strong away supporter group set to attend the match, and Gameiro has called on all fans to continue backing the Sky Blues as they make their final push for the playoffs.

“They [Adelaide] are a team that can and have played some of the best football this season in patches,” said Gameiro.

“So we need the fans support now more than ever.

“Hearing their support behind us it is like having a 12th man out there. It-s motivation.

“We need them.”
