The Socceroo defender will have his hands full against Sydney FC’s Polish winger, who has proven his quality in his limited time on the park this season.

Robbie Cornthwaite vs Bobô
The Wanderers skipper is back from suspension and will look to shutdown the Sky Blue’s top scorer, who has netted six times so far this campaign. 


Kearyn Baccus vs Brendan O’Neill
Whoever comes out on top in this battle of the midfield metronomes will have a big say in which team emerges victorious. 


Brendon Santalab vs Alex Wilkinson
Wilkinson had a fine view of Santalab’s last Sydney Derby winner and will be desperate to avoid a repeat from the Wanderers’ favourite son. 


Vedran Janjetovic vs Andrew Redmayne
Having swapped sides last season, both keepers will be intent on showing up their former employers.
