Kossie not falling for Farina mind games

John Kosmina has accused Queensland rival Frank Farina of playing "mind games" ahead of Friday's A-League finals series opener, the Sydney FC coach saying he couldn't care less about the Roar's problems.

Injuries and suspension have left Queensland's maiden finals push looking decidedly shaky leading up to the first leg of the minor semi-final.

But Kosmina was in no mood to lend a sympathetic ear to Farina's men.

"I don't care about their tale of woe," he said.

"Frank (Farina) has been trying to play mind games in the past, he's trying to play them again."

With two 0-0 draws against Sydney this season, Farina this week said he would happily "sign" for a draw at Sydney Football Stadium - a philosophy Kosmina does not share.

"I don't think as a coach you should never be happy with a draw," Kosmina said.

"You can be happy with a draw after the event, but certainly not before."

After Juninho hit out at Sydney being forced to play their first leg of the elimination bout with Queensland at home, Kosmina and striker Alex Brosque claimed the FFA-enforced scheduling may ultimately work in the club's favour.

As third-placed finishers, the Blues were entitled to play the deciding leg in Sydney, but will instead travel to Brisbane on February 8 due to a Police concert at Suncorp Stadium this week.

Sydney are undefeated away from home this season and Kosmina believes it may be a blessing in disguise to play at home first up.

"I'm happy to be here, probably good that we don't get on a plane," Kosmina said after training.

Sydney beat the Roar 1-0 in Brisbane in September and Brosque said that result would give his side further confidence.

"We probably have been better away, so I guess form suggests play the second leg away from home," he said.

"We're confident going up to Suncorp.

"We've already beaten them once up there."

Brosque was one of two Sydney players selected in Pim Verbeek's 39-man Socceroos squad, but Kosmina expressed surprise midfielders Steve Corica and Ufuk Talay had missed the cut.

"Look, to be honest, the way they have played in the last few weeks, yeah (I'm surprised)," he said.

"They are quality players."

While pleased for striker Brosque and defender Mark Milligan, Kosmina became testy with all the questions on the national team - which plays on February 6 - rather than Sydney.

"We have two guys in the squad, that's great," he said.

"We've got a few guys who missed out, that's better for us, so can we talk about Friday or we're finished.

"I'm here to talk about Sydney FC, I'm not interested in the national team."

Brosque was more receptive than Kosmina about questions on the national squad for the Qatar match in Melbourne.

"I'm happy to be there, but there's still a long way to go," he said.

"But what matters most is performing for your club this week."

Brosque said Queensland could be vulnerable at the back with Danny Tiatto serving a two-match ban and Craig Moore hampered by a groin injury.

"That's something that I'm hoping works to our advantage," the 24-year-old said.

"They've been very solid at the back all year.

"We've got to make that count on the weekend."
