Melbourne Victory captain Josh Brillante says the FFA Cup Final clash with Central Coast Mariners is "massive" and a win would give the club's rebuild another boost.
Victory have started the A-League season strongly and are now a to win the grand final, but they could pick up their first piece of silverware on Saturday if all goes according to plan.
This time last season Victory were struggling big time and went on to pick up the wooden spoon after finishing bottom of the pile in the A-League.
There have since been big changes with Tony Popovic taking over as coach before going on to bring in a host of new players.
They now sit second on the ladder and could go top if they win their game in hand, but the FFA Cup Final is now the main focus and Brillante says they are going all out for the win.
"It's important for the club to strive to win these sort of things and it's huge for the club as well, especially after the last couple of years being so bad and very quickly it's turned around and now we're in a final," he said. "So it's massive. It's a great opportunity.
"I knew that there was definitely the possibility of (silverware) with the way the club was rebuilding and the players that they were bringing in.
"Straight from the get go in pre-season, you could see how things were functioning, how things were working, so I'm not surprised at all."
If they can get the win then Brillante says it will set them up nicely to kick on for the rest of the season.
"It gives you that momentum, that sense of being able to win," he added. "It's still early in the season really, we've played eight games and it gives you the opportunity to keep that ball rolling."
