Vargas aware results need to come soon for Melbourne Victory

Melbourne Victory defender Roddy Vargas is well aware that the club needs to start producing positive results.

The two-time A-League champions are holding on to sixth place on the table by the skin of their teeth following two losses and a draw in their last three and Vargas knows that time is running out if they want to make sure of a finals berth.

"We're running out of games. We've said all along there's 20 games left, 18 games left and now really for us, it's the business end. We need to start stringing a few wins in a row," he said.

"We're confident we'll make finals. That's what we are aiming for at the moment, hopefully we can string two or three wins in a row."

Vargas knows that sixth is not good enough for the Victory and expects the club to pull through this tough time and head towards the play-offs in season 2010/11.

"We put a lot of pressure on ourselves. We are a club who always want to be up there, up and about at the top of the table and for us being sixth isn't good enough," Vargas added.

"I've been at the club five years and we like to pride ourselves on winning championships, medals and trophies. We don't accept anything less than that. For us, it's imperative that we start getting the wins on the board and start making a real push for finals."
