Australian Football: Corica calls for unity after derby loss

Sydney FC coach Steve Corica says they will stick together as a group after losing Saturday’s derby clash against Western Sydney Wanderers 2-0.

Corica's men are priced at 6/4 to finish in the top six of the A-League but they face a battle to stay there following a poor run of results.

Top six doubts

The Sky Blues sit in sixth spot on the ladder but the teams around them on the ladder all have games in hand on them. Wellington Phoenix in seventh place have four.

Top six and finals football is the minimum requirement for Sydney and the pressure will be starting to mount on Corica and his players.

Barbarouses back for Sydney

It is now five games without a win but the coach is adamant they will stay united and come out fighting.

"The ball just wasn't falling for us tonight. It was a little bit side to side. I think when Luciano came on it changed a little bit," Corica told reporters after the game. "We're all to blame for this, we take responsibility as a group."

Kamsoba concerns

There is no time to feel sorry for themselves and Sydney have to pick themselves up quickly for Tuesday's AFC Champions League qualifier against Filipino outfit Kaya FC.

But there are concerns over the fitness of Elvis Kamsoba who appears to have suffered a medial ligament injury ahead of the game.

"There's got to be some changes because it's a short turnaround," Corica added. "There are some players coming back who aren't fully fit. There will be some fresh faces coming in, hopefully."
