The 20-year-old has had a fantastic start to his Sharks career for 2009 having bagged seven goals from midfield but the former Penrith Nepean United player is gunning for finals football.
?I have been happy with the goals and performances this year but to me, it?s all about getting as high as possible on the TeleChoice Premier League ladder and playing finals football come end of the season.
?I believe we have the team to do it and I know with a positive run of decent results we can go as far up the table as possible but I know it will be all down to consistency.?
The Sharks are currently in fifth position with 23 points, two more than sixth placed Bonnyrigg White Eagles who have rejuventated themselves ever since the appointment of ex-Sharks boss Brian ?Bomber? Brown.
Nikas stated to Football NSW that achieving positive results and playing good football will be the key in the Sharks push for the finals series.
?The boys set out a few goals at the start of the season and one was to play finals football so we are all gunning for that.
?We?re also still in the Tiger Turf Cup and I know we will be pushing hard to get as far as possible with that.
?We?re in the Quarter-Finals now so anything can happen.?
Nikas was the star of the show in the Sharks? round 4 clash as they defeated the Marconi Stallions 4-1 with Panny grabbing a hat-trick at Seymour Shaw.
?I was pleased with how things went last week against Marconi, it was a tough game but we battled it out and got the victory we needed.
?The boys played really well and I know everyone of them would be looking at lifting up silverware come end of the year.?
