The Western Sydney Wanderers will be seeking their first win of the A-League season when they travel to Perth on Saturday night for an important meeting with the home town Glory.
Perth have been the surprise packets of the A-League so far this season, and will be looking to continue their good start to the new year against a disappointing Western Sydney outfit.
The Wanderers’ season has been disrupted by their Asian Champions League campaign, but with this distraction now behind them, coach Tony Popovic will be urging his side to put their efforts into another impressive domestic season, beginning with Perth on Saturday.
Coach Popovic will have most of his side available for selection, with only selected players being chosen for the Socceroos’ friendly with Japan. This will assist in their quest to record points in the domestic competition.
Popovic will be looking to players like Iacopo La Rocca, Mark Bridge, and Vitor Saba to lead the side, while evergreen keeper Ante Covic will again show why he should have been considered as the ACL Player of the Year between the posts.
The Wanderers will head west following a disappointing 1-0 loss to Wellington Phoenix last week, while the Glory recorded a solid 3-0 win over Bentleigh Greens in the FFA Cup Semi Final on Tuesday night, after defeating Central Coast by the same scoreline on Sunday.
The team will then head home for a deferred match with Central Coast on Wednesday night, before hosting Newcastle next weekend in a busy period for the Wanderers.
The 2GLF Football team will be on deck at Club Marconi on Saturday night for all the action, so make sure you join us from the special time of 9pm, with kickoff at around 9.30pm.
Nick Kutnjak, Will Gotsis and the team will bring you all the action as the Wanderers resume their quest for an A-League title with three points in Perth.
