Sydney FC skipper Terry McFlynn goes into Saturday-s Big Blue against Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park with a word of warning, ahead of another huge clash for the Sky Blues.
With last weekend-s 7-1 thrashing of Wellington Phoenix still fresh in the memory, McFlynn has urged caution and told his team not to get carried away.
“It-s very important to build on last week,” said the Sky Blues' longest serving player.
“The performance was good, the result was big but we only got three points. We went into the game trying to win the game and we won the game, so we move on from that.”
With ten games remaining and six of them away from home, the two-time A-League Champion believes there is still plenty of hard work to do.
“We can-t get too far ahead of ourselves because we-re not in the six yet.
“We have to keep that momentum and keep the belief that what we are doing is right, and try to sneak in the six tomorrow night.”
Sydney currently sit one point outside the Finals positions and face a Melbourne team sitting third and boosted by a 1-0 win in Perth on Saturday.
“I think they-ve shown over the last month that they-ve started to find a bit of form and are starting to play the way Ange Postecoglu-s teams do play,” said McFlynn.
“But we won-t focus too much on the opposition, as we said early on in the season when we were bottom of the league, everyone was above us so we just had to address every game focusing solely on ourselves.”
Sydney FC are now offering BLOCKBUSTER 4-Packs for the final four home games of the regular season. The massive games include clashes with the reigning A-League Champions Brisbane Roar, the current top two in the standings Central Coast Mariners and Adelaide United, plus another Big Blue and the fierce rivalry against Melbourne Victory, all at Allianz Stadium. Prices start from just $90 to see all four games as Sydney reach the exciting run-in to the A-League Finals Series.
