Central Coast to continue positive momentum - Kwasnik

Central Coast Mariners took some positive momentum into the international break and forward Adam Kwasnik hopes they can keep it going into this weekend.

The Mariners toppled reigning champions Melbourne Victory at Etihad Stadium in their last outing with Kwasnik scoring the first goal with a quick-thinking piece of brilliance.

This weekend, the Mariners face the North Queensland fury bin Townsville and Kwasnik hopes both he and the team can get amongst the goals again.

"It was good to score, it's always good to score, I've said that in the past, but as a team we've got some momentum now after beating the champions 4-0 and we're going to take that confidence into the game," he said.

"It's going to be a tough game, we know that, but we just have to worry about ourselves and get on with it."

Kwasnik added that it was now time for the underrated Mariners to continue to prove the critics wrong and get away from that stigma that they are a purely defensive outfit.

"It's been said in the press that we haven't been scoring a lot of goals but we whacked them in against Melbourne and showed we have the depth in the squad to do some damage this year," said Kwasnik.

"Now that we have put those critics to bed we have to concentrate on getting back-to-back wins and that will boost us up even more, and go from there."
