North Queensland Fury striker Robbie Fowler admits every game from now is a must-win if the club wants to reach the A-League finals.

The Fury currently sits 9th on the table, four points out of the top six and the former Liverpool star knows just how important it is to keep in touch with the teams above them so has urged his teammates to think the same way he does before any match – that it is winnable.

''You don't want to get too detached from everyone else in the league, so a must-win? I think every game is a must-win,'' Fowler said.

''I go in with the attitude that I want to win all the time, so I treat every game as a must-win and hopefully all the players will do all that.

''But the way the games are, the league's so tight, we've just got to try and get more points and not get too stressed at the bottom, because the longer you go without winning and the more points you have got to get to reach that next level, it's going to get harder.''

The Fury takes on the Perth Glory tomorrow night at Dairy Farmers Stadium and Fowler has taken solace in the fact his side got the job done last time the teams met.

''We beat them here last time ... they'll want to come here and put in a performance to try and beat what they did last time,'' he said.

''They have some good players and I think they have proved that in the two games we have played them so far so it's going to be tough.''
