FYL Preview: Canberra vs Wanderers


The Western Sydney Wanderers Foxtel Y-League team travel to the AIS Grass Fields on Saturday afternoon to take on Canberra United.

The Wanderers come into the match filled with confidence, currently on an undefeated streak and sitting on the top of the Group B table with a clear seven-point lead. 

The Red & Black fought back last week to defeat the Newcastle Jets 5-3 at Marconi Stadium. 

A double from Kosta Grozos, as well as goals from Mohamed Adam, Marc Tokich and own goal in second-half stoppage time, secured the three points.

Canberra, on the other hand, has struggled to make their mark in the competition, having lost all three games played. 

Last round, United fell to the Mariners 6-3 after a three-goal barrage in the final 10 minutes of the match saw Central Coast leave with the win. 

This match will be the second time the two sides meet with the Wanderers previously thumping Canberra 8-0 in the season opener. 

Abraham Majok was the star of the show, netting a hat trick and grabbing an assist. Oliver Puflett helped himself to a double, while goals from Adam, Fabian Monge and Moudi Najjar rounded off the scoring.
