Olympic FC Captain, Steve Whyte says confidence is high amongst his side ahead of Wednesday’s clash against Redlands United at Goodwin Park.

Olympic come into Wednesday’s match off the back of a pair of big win’s over Lions & Brisbane City in their last two outings.

Olympic’s strong form as of late has seen them move to within a point of competition leaders Lions and Gold Coast Knights moving into the back end of the 2020 NPL Queensland season.

Whyte said his side wouldn’t get carried away and were solely focused on picking up three points in Wednesday’s match at Goodwin Park.

“You can’t look too far ahead in this league, you’ve always got to take it one game at a time, manage that and do everything you can to possibly win it,” Whyte said.

“It’s all about looking after yourself off the field as well as on the field and managing yourself and making sure you’re doing everything right.”

The Olympic skipper added his side were eager to continue their winning run with three points against Redlands.

“It’s always good to win big games, it’s good for us and good for our confidence, once you get on this kind of roll and get momentum you become difficult to stop,” Whyte said.

“Bringing in people in like Ajdin (Fetahagic) & Tasuku (Sekiya) gives everyone a lift and has brought something different to our game.

“We’re looking really solid at the back and in attack everyone’s putting in, everyone’s running, everyone wants to score and making sure we do the right things to score.

“The team morale is good and everyone’s getting behind each other, everyone’s confident which is the main thing.”


Olympic and Redlands have already met once this season with Olympic running out 3-2 winners at Compass Grounds courtesy of goals from Whyte, Jez Lofthouse & Tasuku Sekiya last month.

The Red Devils currently occupy twelfth spot on the NPL Queensland ladder and suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Young Roar in their last outing.

Whyte said the attitude and desire of his side since returning from the COVID enforced break had been first class.

“The boys are putting in for each other, the staff are giving everything for the boys and we’re putting in everything for the staff and the Club,” Whyte said.

“The boys are wearing the badge with pride and we’re doing everything we can to win and make sure the supporters and the Club are happy.”
