Having bagged four goals in five games during a hugely-impressive start to the A-League season, it comes as no surprise that Nick D’Agostino is really enjoying his football.
The 22-year-old Young Socceroos representative is relishing being part of a free-flowing and free-scoring Glory forward line from which he believes the best is yet to come.
And he’s confident that the men in purple will showcase that improvement during Friday’s eagerly-anticipated clash with his former club, Brisbane Roar.
“It’s only the start,” he said.
“We’ve only played five games which is the least in the league at the moment and we want to try and keep that going and keep pushing forward.
“There’s a lot of talent and experience [in the squad] and it’s been very positive.
“We’ve been very attacking.
“Garc [Head Coach Richard Garcia] lets us play with a lot of freedom and has that belief in us to go and express ourselves and enjoy it on the pitch and I think that’s showing a lot this season.
“Friday’s game is another stepping stone for us and we have a lot of games coming up in the next month, so there’s a lot of football to be played and hopefully a lot more goals to come.”
So does lining up against the club with whom he began his professional career still carry extra significance for him?
“It does a little bit,” he said.
“It’s always nice seeing old friends and old teammate, but at the end of the day it’s business and we want to go out there and get the three points in front of our home fans.
“It’s going to be a tough battle.
“They drew with Sydney and have had a couple of good results since the start of the season.
“Every game in this league is tough; there are no easy-beats.
“We have a lot of quality to go out and do the job and hopefully I can get another couple more goals to add to the tally.”
Kick-off against Roar at HBF Park on Friday is at 6.05pm and you can grab your tickets HERE.
