The Red & Black are back at home this Friday night for their second match this season against Adelaide United.

The Red & Black are back at home this Friday night for their second match this season against Adelaide United. 

You can get your tickets to the match here. 

The Wanderers come into the match following a seven-goal thriller against Perth last Sunday night at HBF Park.

Perth Glory staged a second-half comeback to defeat the Wanderers 4-3, in what was arguably one of the games of the Hyundai A-League season.

The result was a frustrating blow for the Wanderers, who had taken the lead late in the opening half through Kwame Yeboah. Yeboah, making his first start in the competition in over five years, teed up second-half goals for Roly Bonevacia and Abraham Majok.

Despite the finish, there are plenty of positives that Wanderers members and fans took out of the match.

Fielding a squad with an average age of 23.1 re-affirmed the bright future and the ability of the next generation of Wanderers coming through the Academy system.

Whilst, 11 of the 16 players selected for the match were either from Western Sydney or came through the Wanderers Academy system.

The Reds come into the match after their four-match unbeaten run came to an end in Sydney.

Craig Goodwin’s penalty was not enough to inspire a comeback as Adelaide United lost 2-1 to Sydney FC at Jubilee Stadium.

The last time these two sides met was on Boxing Day last year with the match ending in a 2-2 draw.

The Red & Black will need to secure all three points on Friday night for any hopes of a finals berth this Hyundai A-League season.
