Olympic FC forward Jez Lofthouse says there’s plenty yet to come from his side ahead of Saturday’s clash with Gold Coast United at Robina Station Reserve.
Olympic are looking to continue their perfect start to the season when they head down the M1 on face United on Saturday night.
The league leaders have won each of their opening five fixtures and sit three points clear at the summit of the NPL Queensland table.
In contrast to the visitors Gold Coast United haven’t won since the opening day and languish in twelfth position.
Olympic FC forward Jez Lofthouse says irrespective of the opponents his side are focused purely on themselves.
“We’re not really worried about what the other teams are doing, we’re just focusing on ourselves; getting better and making sure that we get the results each week.”
“Trainings been really good this week and we’re preparing really well, we expect to go out and the get the three points on the weekend, we’re really looking forward to it and expecting a good result.”
Olympic’s scintillating early season form has equated to a club record start, Olympic now have seventeen goals split between nine different goal scorers.
Only Western Pride who notched an unprecedented 15 goals against Sunshine Coast Fire last weekend have scored more times this season than the Yeronga-based club.
Lofthouse puts his sides strong start down to the mentality within the group.
“The environment is so positive around training at the moment, everyone’s got a winning mentality and all the boys are getting along really well and gelling a lot at the moment as well.”
“It all seems to be falling into place right now.” Lofthouse said.
Despite his sides strong start to the season Lofthouse reiterated that there is still plenty of improvement left to come from his side.
“We’ve come a long way from round one already and every week we’re getting better, we’re training harder and trying to be the best team that we can.”
“We’ve still got a lot of improvement left in us and we’re getting stronger with each passing week,” Lofthouse concluded.
Saturday’s match between Olympic FC and Gold Coast United kicks off at 7pm at Robina Station Reserve.
