Australian Football: Grant says consistency needed

Rhyan Grant admits that Sydney FC only have themselves to blame for a poor run of results that have left them battling to play finals this season.

The Sky Blues are priced at 16/1 to win the grand final but they have work to do as they sit in seventh place having played more games than the teams around them.

Big derby showdown

Sydney take on Western Sydney Wanderers in a big derby clash on Saturday and with Steve Corica’s men having just six games left to play they need to start picking up wins.

Grant is well aware of that and says the Sky Blues need to find some consistency.

"Inconsistencies have cost us and at times we have played some good footy and got some good results,” He told reporters.
"Then other times we've been a bit lacklustre and a bit sloppy and we've only got ourselves to blame.

"We've had way too many draws and many losses for what we're used to here at Sydney and for what we expect.

"We've only got six games remaining so we need to get as many wins as possible to make sure we secure a top-six finish."

Appearance record

Grant is set to make his 268th appearance for Sydney on Saturday, which will be a club record as he surpasses Alex Brosque.
And he hopes his record-breaking appearance is much better than his first ever.

"My debut was against Perth (in 2008) and I think I got 15 minutes and we lost 4-1," he added.
