Adelaide United midfielder Kristian Sarkies believes there is light at the end of the tunnel.
The former Melbourne Victory man understands the Reds have had a slow start to the 2009/10 A-League season but can definitely see things turning, especially after the 2-0 away win over North Queensland Fury last week.
"We haven't been playing the best football but we scored two goals, won the game and that is what we went there to do in Townsville," Sarkies said.
"I guess that can kick-start our season and, hopefully, we can go on from there.
"The feeling among the boys is great at the moment."
However, Sarkies admitted that without Eugene Galekovic in goals, the start of the season could look a lot worse for Adelaide.
"He is the club champion, Goalkeeper of the Year and a top guy," Sarkies added.
"He is a key figure in our team and without him we would be a quite a few goals down this season."
The Reds take on Newcastle Jets on Monday at Hindmarsh Stadium and Sarkies knows just how hard that clash will be to win.
"Branko Culina has done a great job with that team. They are a very unpredictable squad," Sarkies added further.
"It will be a tough. We will have to be on the ball in a game we have to win the game."
