Sydney FC skipper Terry McFlynn has declared the Sky Blues are raring to go for tonight's 2011 AFC Champions League clash with Korea's Suwon Samsung Bluewings at the Sydney Football Stadium (8pm kick-off).

Suwon, who boast four Korean internationals, are two-time AFC Champions League champions and declared at the official pre-match press conference that will not only beat Sydney FC tonight but win the tournament.

"They can talk it up as much as they want to but we are ready," McFlynn said.

"I'd rather be in the position of the A-League teams where we are coming off the back of our season and are match hardened. I'd prefer it to coming off a preseason as is the case with them.

"This is a new competition and a fresh start and the hunger is there. The boys can't wait."

Coach Vitezslav Lavicka revealed at the press conference that one of the clubs AFC Champions League recruits - David Williams and Andrew Durante - will start tonight and that Korean defender Sung-Hwan Byun, who is not in the squad for the tournament, has provided the Sky Blues with a host of knowledge about Suwon and its players.

"Byun has helped us, he knows the Korean team and some of the players who play for them and all credit to him for doing that, he has given us some vital information," Lavicka said.

"But it wasn't easy to pick up any information on them.

"They haven't started their regular season yet so it is difficult to find out too much, but we know they will be a quality side and have some strong players."

Star midfielder Nicky Carle eachoed the sentiments of McFlynn.

"We go into the game on the back of a good run and there is a lot of confidence going into the game," Carle said.

"It was always going to take some time for the team to gel, when you have players injured like we did it is going to be tough but we feel good about ourselves at the moment.

"We are going to have to be at our best and know that they are going to be a good side who are technically very strong and fit."

Kick-off is at 8pm.
