Le Fondre scored a brace for the Sky Blues in last night’s 3-0 away win over Melbourne City and has a total of seven goals to his name in FFA Cup and A-League competitions.

Alfie, the successor to Bobo, said there was no pressure to match the 27 goals the Brazilian scored last season.

The reigning golden boot winner amassed 42 in his time at Sydney and is now in Turkey playing for Alanyaspor.

“As soon as I came here, I said I’m going to score goals,” Le Fondre said.

“I made no bones about it, I will score goals and that’s what I’m doing. This team creates chances, I take the chances and it’s as simple as that.

“That’s why Bobo scored so many. He’s obviously a good finisher to score 27 (last season) – I’m chasing a hefty target, but all I can do is score what’s in front of me.

“I want to win games, I want to win trophies. It would be nice to eclipse that but if I score anywhere near that, I think I’m going to be successful.

“It’s not bravado, it’s just confidence. I want to score goals, that’s what I want to do, that’s what I’ve been doing since I was about four years old. I’ve made no bones about it – I’ve come here to score a lot of goals, and if the boys create a lot of chances, I will do that.”

Le Fondre was also pleased about the way his side bounced back after their FFA Cup Final loss to Adelaide United during the week.

Sydney limited City to just two shots on target on Friday night.

“Defensively, it was an outstanding showing. On Tuesday night, we limited Adelaide to not much at it was a bit tit-for-tat in the game, there wasn’t much in it either chances-wise," the French-English player said.

“I think we put on a really resolute display and we brought it on against City. If they break us down and we got chances, we knew we had to take them and we took our chances.”
