Muscat: Job only half done

Melbourne Victory skipper Kevin Muscat says there is no danger of complacency creeping into his team ahead of the Hyundai A-League Grand Final in a fortnight's time after the devastating 6-0 aggregate win over Adelaide in the major semi-final.

Melbourne Victory skipper Kevin Muscat says there is no danger of complacency creeping into his team ahead of the Hyundai A-League Grand Final in a fortnight's time after the devastating 6-0 aggregate win over Adelaide in the major semi-final.

The Victory backed up their 2-0 win in the first leg in Adelaide with an emphatic 4-0 win at Telstra Dome on Saturday night with Carlos Hernandez scoring one goal and setting up three others in a magnificent individual performance.

The win ensures Melbourne will host its second Hyundai A-League Grand Final at Telstra Dome in three seasons, following on from its 6-0 rout of Adelaide in the 2006/07 decider.

Muscat said Saturday night's rout of Adelaide in the major semi-final was as good, if not better, than their performance against the Reds in the grand final two years ago.

"That (performance) was of the highest order," Muscat said after the second leg of the major semi-final success.

"In the four years I have been here our application was the highest I have witnessed."

"And when Melbourne Victory is anywhere near 100 percent - with the squad we have got - we are a match for anyone in the competition."

"That is not overconfidence - that is a fact."

But Muscat said there was no way his team - which was presented with the Premier's Plate after the semi-final win for finishing the regular season on top of the ladder - was getting carried away.

Melbourne has now won its past seven home matches and seven of its past eight matches overall and Muscat said the players were now determined to win their second Championship in front of their adoring fans in a fortnight's time.

"From here on our preparation will be the same and our mindset will be the same as it has been," he said.

"The main thing for me is we (the players) have the hunger to do it again."

"If you are not hungry to be successful and you don't want to play under pressure then you are never going to play in these games but we thrive on that."

"Our boys can't wait to play under pressure and to play in front of all these (home) fans - who are by far the best in the country."

"We wanted to give our fans a home grand final because they deserve that and we have done that now and repaid them slightly."

"But now we have got ourselves in the grand final we certainly want to win and we want to win it here in Melbourne in front of our fans."
