Muscat: 'It's all irrelevant'

Melbourne Victory head coach Kevin Muscat says it will be the side that delivers on the big stage that will win their Elimination Final against Brisbane Roar this weekend.

Muscat contends that form and confidence go out the window when it comes to the finals series.

"It's all selective because if you look back one game, we'll say we're ultra confident. If they look back to their last home game (against us), they're ultra confident," Muscat said.

"If we look back to the last three games we've been in Brisbane, we'd be ultra confident. It's all irrelevant.

"Everyone makes a case to suit them. The reality is it's (about) who can handle the big stage, and the cut-throat end to the season under immense pressure, the best."

"We've got players that have delivered on the big stage (in the past) and regularly."

Melbourne Victory have been buoyed by the possibility of returning captain Carl Valeri being in contention to play this weekend as well as the return of Besart Berisha from suspension.

"There's no room for error tomorrow night, so I certainly won't be holding back, saving someone for something that might not be there," he said.

"It's a game that both teams must win and I'll be making decisions accordingly."
