Adelaide United left-back Cassio feels that every game his side steps out on the park for is like a final.

The Reds are currently positioned third on the A-League table but need wins to give themselves a chance of hauling second-placed Central Coast Mariners so they can claim a top-two finish.

Tonight, Adelaide take on fourth-placed Gold Coast United at Skilled Park and the Brazilian is well aware of the magnitude of the fixture.

"It's another final for us. We have three finals and it starts tomorrow against Gold Coast," he said yesterday.

"It's a real important game for us and we have to do everything we can to win this game.

"We were a bit flat and we have to improve. We've trained good the last two days and it should be good for tomorrow night.

"If we win this game it will bring the confidence back," he added.

"Actually all the players have confidence but we lost last game and we didn't play good. We didn't like losing at home and we have to change that tomorrow.

"It will be a hard game for us over there but we have to do everything we can to win the game. We have to go there, do our job, play good football and bring home the three points to Adelaide."
