Sydney FC central defender Iain Fyfe is determined to end his career at the Hyundai A-League's glamour club on a winning note by being a key part of another title charge.

South Australian-born Fyfe has decided to move back to his hometown at the end of the season and is looking to end his time at the Sydney Football Stadium on a high.

"It's the most important thing for me personally," he said.

"I don't want to leave this team and my team-mates and the Sydney fans on anything but a winning note."

"I'm going to do whatever it takes to leave here as a champion, knowing that I gave 110 per cent and knowing that I left a great club that's been great to me with another trophy in the cabinet … it's how I want to end my career at Sydney FC."

Fyfe was a standout in his side's Round 14 win over Newcastle, heading home the first-half equaliser and leading the way in defence to stifle any chance of a Jets comeback.

"It was a very important win, probably the kind of win that shows a lot of people the character and mental strength of the team," Fyfe said.

"It's a huge boost. It was more than just getting the three points, it proved a lot of things to a lot of people, a lot of doubters, and it proved a lot of things to ourselves as well."

The foundation player has become Sydney's leader at the back since the recent retirement of Tony Popovic and it's a role he is relishing.

"I'm loving it. I love being more of a leader and having more responsibility and it's a role that I'm really revelling in," he said.

"I feel like the more that's needed from me by the team, the better I play and I'm looking forward to the remaining games and really stepping my game up even more."

Sydney FC will look to take the next step towards end-of-season glory when it faces off against fierce-rivals, the Central Coast Mariners, on Saturday.
