The Western Sydney Wanderers will be looking for their second win this week when they host Perth Glory on Sunday afternoon at Pirtek Stadium.
The Wanderers will be coming off a mid-week win in the Asian Champions League at home, and will be keen to continue their recent good form against Perth.
Coach Tony Popovic will be looking for his rested stars, like Polenz, Mooy, Bridge and Santalab to deliver against a Perth side which has struggled for form this season.
Perth coach Kenny Lowe will be hoping his side can disrupt the chances of the Wanderers reclaiming second spot on the A League ladder, following their draw with Adelaide last weekend.
Lowe himself needs results to go his way, as he seeks the fulltime role in Perth, following the sacking of Alistair Edwards earlier this season.
Popovic will know three points is essential for the club, who has fallen to third on the ladder, following last weekend’s results, and need to keep winning to keep their Top Two hopes alive.
The run home for the Wanderers is positive, but they need to deliver consistent results for the coaching staff and supporters, with time running out before the finals begin.
The Wanderers will be hoping conditions improve on the pitch at home, with a 30 minute delay before last weekend’s match with Adelaide, due to a torrential storm in Western Sydney.
Supporters and players will be looking to the skies, but hoping for after another successful and impressive performance from the Wanderers at home on Sunday evening.
