Western Sydney Wanderers striker Tomer Hemed is determined to do his best to help his side enjoy a strong finish to the A-League season.
Western currently lie down in tenth place in the standings and their next assignment is a derby clash with Sydney FC at Commbank Stadium on Saturday, with Wanderers 23/10 to register a victory and 5/2 to secure a draw.
And Israel international frontman Hemed is keen to make up for lost time, having seen his campaign disrupted by illness and injury - he has scored three goals in 11 appearances since his arrival from Wellington Phoenix.
He told AAP: "I have a lot to give for the team this season. The start of the season had a few stops for me, a lot of things that didn't really get me to play every game and get the rhythm that I want.
"Now I feel good and ready for playing every game, training hard every day and, for me, I know that from now until the end of the season that's the most important time."
"I know that now it's my time to help the team, to score my goals and to lead the team to be where we want to be at the end of the season."
"I have experience, I've been there many times and I will not stop until we will get there. We must do a good run from now and I'm sure that we can do it and finish where we want to be."
Hemed has previously played in both Spain and England, having started his career in his homeland with Maccabi Haifa, while on the international stage he has scored 18 goals in 38 appearances for the Blue and Whites.
