Lavicka clearly frustrated with Sydney FC form

Vitezslav Lavicka is finding his second season in the A-League a lot tougher than the first.

The Czech tactician led the Sky Blues to the Championship/Premiership double last term but after eight games, his side remains winless and at the foot of the table.

Last night, Sydney should have finished off the North Queensland Fury when they had the chance but allowed the opposition in to score an equaliser which forced a match they should have won into a draw.

Lavicka said that he was very frustrated about the way things had panned out so far but was sure his side would crack it for a win sooner rather than later.

"It's always the same story this season - chasing the first win, the first victory," he said.

"I'm frustrated from the results, every coach must be frustrated and must be worried about his job if good results don't come ... they're not coming.

"As I told you after the last game I have full responsibility for the team.

"Everything is about confidence and is in their minds," he added.

"We have players that are good players on the park, they train well and we have good quality players but without a strong mentality you have a small chance to be successful.

"We need to win one game and I believe hopefully after that we will be able to start climbing higher."

Sydney will be looking for their first win of the 2010/11 A-League season when they meet league leaders Adelaide United at the Sydney Football Stadium on Monday evening.
