Sydney FC striker John Aloisi is confident of regaining his killer instinct this season.

The former Socceroos star endured a torrid run last season with the Sky Blues but after a strong pre-season believes his bad luck may change despite a recent setback with an ankle injury.

"It's been good because I've been able to train properly and for me that's been the most important thing," he said.

“Because we've had such a long pre-season I won't lose anything (with the ankle injury).

"The base is already there, my sharpness is getting really good, confidence is good and so I'm sure that will carry on into the season.

"I've been feeling very good physically. It's the best I've felt in four years because I haven't had a good pre-season for that long. It's been very enjoyable."
