Sydney’s Jamieson: Players positive despite poor start

Sydney FC defender Scott Jamieson insists the mood in the camp is positive despite the winless start to the season.

Sydney FC defender Scott Jamieson insists the mood in the camp is positive despite the winless start to the season.

The reigning champions have endured a horror beginning to their title defence which is ironic considering last season, Jamieson finished on the bottom of the table with Adelaide United.

Now the tide has completely turned as the Reds sit pretty on top as Sydney wallow in unfamiliar territory but Jamieson can see the light.

“I was hoping it (the Sydney move) would be a lot different to what I faced at Adelaide – but it’s all a learning curve and I’m pretty confident that, as a team ,we can get out of it,” he told Australian Football Weekly.

“Rightly so, the media have been on our backs; we’re defending champions and we haven’t won a game in six or seven now so it’s something we know is going to come at us.

“But there’s a positive mood among the players. It’s a hard thing to say and I’m not just saying it for the sake of it but we know we’re in a situation and we won’t shy away from that.

“We’re trying to do everything right off the field in terms of training and preparation. It’s just on game day it hasn’t clicked yet but hopefully it’ll start soon.”

Sydney get the chance to kickstart their season when they take on arch rivals Melbourne Victory at Etihad Stadium this Saturday night.
