Head coach Dean Heffernan has named his squad for Saturday night’s clash against Newcastle Jets at the Wanderers Football Park.
Only members with redeemed tickets will be able to access the match.
The Wanderers fell to a 3-0 Sydney Derby defeat to the Sky Blues which left Dean Heffernan’s side on the foot of the Westfield W-League table.
Ashley Wilson takes the reins as Newcastle Jets Head Coach this season and will be eager to get the Jets off to a good start as her side attempt to avoid a second wooden spoon in as many seasons.
Only a penalty scored by former Wanderers midfielder Amy Harrison could separate both sides when they last met in Round 2 of the 2019/20 campaign – the Wanderers were enjoying an early season flourish at the time, but Heffernan’s side will be approaching this season’s early contest with the Jets with the motivation of a different kind after their Sydney Derby defeat in Round 1.
