Ins & Outs: Adelaide v Wanderers

Head coach Marko Rudan has named his extended squad set to make the trip to South Australia for Saturday night’s clash against Adelaide United.

The first match between the two sides this Isuzu UTE A-League season was a controlled affair, with Dylan Pierias’ first goal for the Wanderers securing a 1-0 win at CommBank Stadium.

The result saw the Wanderers move level with Adelaide in the head-to-head ledger, with each side having 11 wins, with 12 games drawn.

The Red & Black will be bolstered by the return of many players in the away fixture and will need to be ready to take on a home side that has the fourth best win record in the league in front of their own fans.
