No holding back for Brisbane Roar says Stefanutto

Brisbane Roar defender Shane Stefanutto says the league leaders want to keep improving despite their 23-game unbeaten streak.

The Roar vice-captain is well aware that the team is playing some top football as they hone in on the minor Premiership but like coach Ange Postecoglou, Stefanutto is looking for things to get even better.

"We've been on a good run, we're on a good run, and we've played some good football this year, but like the boss has said a number of times, we want to get better," the 31-year old told Australian Football Weekly.

"When we started the season there were no expectations on us, we just wanted to be successful and we wanted to play a good brand of football; it wasn't about getting noticed, we were hoping that all the hard work we do would result in good performances and a good brand of football.

"I think at the moment we have done that I am sure it will continue."

With two regular season matches to go before the finals (in which the Roar will certainly get a double chance), Stefanutto said results will fall by the wayside as the team simply wants to perform strongly.

"We're aiming to be strong in the next two games; we're not worried about results, just putting in good performances against a couple of dangerous teams (Wellington Phoenix and North Queensland Fury)."
