Lavicka wants Sydney FC’s killer instinct back

Sydney FC boss Vitezslav Lavicka has urged his side to find their killer instinct after another poor performance in front of goal.

Sydney FC boss Vitezslav Lavicka has urged his side to find their killer instinct after another poor performance in front of goal.

The reigning A-League champions remained winless and at the foot of the table when they drew 1-1 with Gold Coast United at the Sydney Football Stadium yesterday and it was their lack of urgency in the goalmouth that essentially stopped them from taking all three points from their ten man opposition.

''Still the same problem for Sydney FC is to score more than one goal on the day,'' Lavicka said in the post-match. ''We scored three in round one but in the rest of the games, we have the same problem - scoring more goals.''

But it wasn’t all doom and gloom as the Czech tactician did find some positives from the performance.

''We started the game very well - actively, aggressively. We created several good opportunities, we scored a goal. In the first half we played more actively [but] we conceded a goal at a bad time,'' Lavicka added. ''We kept the spirit in the second half also but it was difficult to play against a good, organised opponent.

''We didn't win but the boys showed good signs and there are several positives from the game. We need to stay up and get ready for the game on Wednesday (against North Queensland Fury).''
