Kearyn Baccus misses out after picking up his fifth yellow of the season in last week’s Sydney Derby.

Saturday’s match will mark the third meeting between the two sides this season, following Round 5’s 2-2 draw in Perth and Round 13’s 1-1 draw at ANZ Stadium.


The sixth-placed Wanderers will be looking to pick up back-to-back victories for the first time this Hyundai A-League season after last week’s 1-0 Sydney Derby win, while fifth-placed Perth are coming off a 2-2 draw at home to Brisbane in Round 20.

Following the visit to Perth, the Wanderers will head straight to China for their Asian Champions League clash against Shanghai SIPG on Tuesday night.
