Striker Jamie Maclaren believes Melbourne City have the quality to upset league leaders Perth Glory on Sunday and get back into the A-League title race.
City are fifth in the table, 18 points behind Tony Popovic's side, and haven't tasted victory in six games.
Maclaren, who signed earlier this month and has scored three goals in three games, feels they are capable of handing Perth just their second defeat of the campaign.
"If we focus on our own backyard and how we are going to create chances and really push forward, then we will do good things on Sunday," said the Australia international.
"It's time to get three points, because I can sense the vibe in the team – once we do get three points we will be a hard team to stop.
"I look at the depth we have got and the quality in the team. With the way we play, people say it's all possession based, but imagine if you bring possession based with creating chances and burying chances plus being sure at the back; it's almost like a complete squad."
City failed to beat 10-man Melbourne Victory last week, despite Maclaren having given them a 16th-minute lead from the penalty spot and goals have been at a premium for Warren Joyce's side over the past nine games.
They came good in a 4-3 home win over Western Sydney last month, but their other eight outings have only yielded five goals.
City will have home advantage over Perth at AAMI Park, which they hope will tip the scales their way. They are unbeaten in their last eight home games, picking up five victories during that run.
City are 2/1 to win the game against the Glory, who are 11/8, with the draw 23/10.
