Adelaide United captain Travis Dodd's main focus for this season is an elusive A-League championship. The 29-year old midfielder is desperate to improve on last year's Grand Final loss and go one better in 2009/10.
"We need to (start well) because five of our first seven games are at home and we need to capitalise on that," Dodd said.
"We're hungry for silverware, we've set the bar pretty high and we know we have the quality to deliver and go one better than last year. People might say we've been sailing under the radar in the pre-season and that suits us fine.
"We know what we're capable of. We don't need other people to tell us."
