Melbourne Heart FC Captain Simon Colosimo says it is crucial the side secures all three points during tomorrow night-s Melbourne Derby at Etihad Stadium.

Since claiming a stunning come from behind victory over Adelaide United in December, Heart is unbeaten in five matches, with a win in the Derby ensuring the team equals the Club record of six games without defeat earlier in the year.

In what will be the deciding match-up of the Derby series, Colosimo believes Heart must continue its recent run of form to maintain its surge for a berth in the Hyundai A-League Finals Series.

“We've been doing it for a month, every game we've come into we know we need to perform well, but more importantly get a result,” he said.

“If you look at our last five games, we've got 11 from 15 points - we've got to go into every game with that frame of mind where we've got to believe and win.”

“There's no doubt that we're going to go out there on Saturday and not worry about what the table says, but worry that we've got 90 minutes of football where we have to match them in every department and hopefully come out on top.”
