The Wanderers head into the match with two wins on the trot after a gritty display against Adelaide United last week.

An inspired Roly Bonevacia led the Wanderers to secure all three points and will no doubt be looking to continue his form against the Glory on Sunday night.

Having delivered the free-kick for Oriol Riera’s 12th-minute opener, star man Bonevacia returned to restore the visitors’ lead following Ryan Kitto’s equaliser and then supplied the pass for Abraham Majok to con rm Western Sydney’s first victory over the Reds in eight attempts in the Hyundai A-League.

Kitto had spared Craig Goodwin’s blushes following the Adelaide talisman’s failure to beat Vedran Janjetovic from the spot but their fightback fizzled out after the restart as the Reds missed a chance to extend their two-point gap to fifth-placed Melbourne City.


League leaders Perth Glory will be similarly heading to the match filled with confidence after an emphatic 4-0 victory over Brisbane Roar at HBF Park.

Andy Keogh struck a brace on his return to the starting XI while standout pair Jason Davidson and Diego Castro bookended the scoring with a goal apiece in a one-sided affair at HBF Park.

The final scoreline was Perth’s largest winning margin against Brisbane and completed their maiden clean sweep of the Queensland club.

Sunday’s match will mark the third time the Wanderers and Glory have met this season. 

The first match saw the sides share the spoils in the opening match of the season whilst their most recent meeting in Round 13 saw the Glory edge the Wanderers 4-3.

There’s no doubt that the Wanderers will be looking to continue their winning streak and exact revenge on some familiar foes.
