Steve Corica believes that we haven’t seen the best of his Sky Blue side yet this season following their Big Blue Victory.

In Corica’s eyes, Saturday’s arm wrestle of a match against Melbourne Victory was merely a sneak peak of what’s to come for the remainder of the season. With his squad sitting in sixth place as we near the tight end of the competition, things look as though they could go either way, but Corica is confident that the only way is up.

“We’re capable of winning every game coming up,” Steve Corica said.

“If we perform defensively the way that we did tonight and continue to keep clean sheets, then we’ve definitely got a better chance to make the final rounds.”

Sydney FC’s 1-0 win over Melbourne Victory was far from one-sided. It took quite a defensive battle for the home squad to come out on top, but it was a solid defensive battle nonetheless.

Sydney FC skipper, Alex Wilkinson, worked to hold the backline in control. He said that what pleased him the most from the match was that everyone put their body on the line when they needed to.

“That’s the minimum standard now, and we need to bring that every week,” Alex Wilkinson said.

For the Sky Blues, a win is a win, and to take those three points at this stage in the season is vital. Next week they will be coming up against Wellington Phoenix, followed by Western Sydney Wanderers, the two teams sitting above them on the table. Corica’s confidence matters now more than ever, and he believes that there is still significant room for improvement.

“I probably haven’t started the team that I wanted to start from the beginning of the season,” Corica said.

“We’re still growing, we’ve still got players to come back into the side.”

Multiple players are out with commitments to the Young Socceroos, key striker, Adam Le Fondre, is currently out with injury, and after Saturday’s red card incident, they will also be missing Max Burgess in the midfield. Steve Corica is anticipating that, when his squad is back in full form, we are due to see some of their best performances yet.

“We will look forward to having them back for the late run-in home.” Corica said.
