Sydney FC coach takes blame for loss

Under-fire Sydney FC coach Vitezslav Lavicka was again left to explain how his charges squandered a lead in the dying minutes.

After suffering a heartbreaking loss to Brisbane last week - when the Roar staged a miraculous late comeback scoring two extra-time goals to win 2-1 - Sydney yet again let the match slip out of their grasp when Perth snatched a 1-1 draw with an 88th minute equaliser.

While the one point from Wednesday's rescheduled A-League community-round clash at Campbelltown Stadium moved the Sky Blues back into the top six, it also left them winless after six games.

But Lavicka, who shouldered the blame, remained resolute.

"It's the same problem as last week, we have to keep the concentration until the final whistle," the Czech coach said.

"We have to win the games.

"I'm taking full responsibility for this situation. But I am not a man who gives up.

"We will sit down with the Sydney FC board and the people in the club and we must fix it."

Since eyeing a top-two spot only a fortnight ago, Sydney have endured a humbling slide down the ladder after a six-game winless streak that included four losses on the trot.

And Lavicka feels the draw against Perth was another sucker-punch to an already bruised side.

"Mentality is a very important side of the game," he said.

"You can set up the team physically, tactically and technically but the psychology is a very important part of the game.

"This is another tough hit to the team."

Skipper Terry McFlynn said the draw felt more like a loss for the side who were desperate to revive their ailing season.

He admitted another winless showing in front of a home crowd was a huge blow to the team who have only managed two wins at home in eight attempts.

With only a few days to regroup before their next clash against Miron Bleiberg's Gold Coast on Sunday he says anything less than the three points will not be good enough.

"Tonight we had to win to get the season up and going again," McFlynn said.

"We needed the three points.

"But we just have to keep believing in what we're doing day in, day out.

"We can't let these two games affect us.

"We're a strong group, there's belief in the group and there's togetherness in the group.

"We've got a game at home at the SFS on Sunday against the Gold Coast and we have to win.

"It's that simple."
