HAL: Ins & Outs for Saturday’s Sydney Derby


Markus Babbel has named his squad for Saturday’s Round 2 Hyundai A-League match against Sydney FC at Sydney Cricket Ground. 

The Wanderers will head into the Derby after sharing the points in Perth last weekend in the opening round of the Hyundai A-League competition. 

The Red & Black will still be without a number of youngsters from the Wanderers Academy who are away with the Young Socceroos but will be bolstered at the back with the return of German defender Patrick Ziegler. 

Youngster Abraham Majok has also been added into the extended squad.
