All the latest news ahead of this weekend’s clash
Sydney are back on track for the league title and this week they take on struggling Adelaide United, who could potentially be Sydney’s next victim, as Adelaide are still searching for their first win, in Week 7.
Last week all eyes were on the Sky Blues, after they dropped a game to the Jets earlier on in Week 4. The girls from Sydney didn-t disappoint fans against Perth on Saturday, securing the much-needed 2-0 win and silencing their critics.
Leena Khamis and Kyah Simon each notched a goal, while team mate Kylie Ledbrook led the way with a strong performance in the midfield.
The win should be concerning for all other teams, given that Sydney clinched it without Captain and Westfield Matilda Heather Garriock. This is testament to the depth and self-belief held by the team, which they are continuously revealing to opponents and fans alike each time they play.
Self-belief may be the one thing lacking in the Lady Reds camp this week, as they are yet to secure a win after losing to league leaders Brisbane Roar 3-1 last week.
One positive to come out of the match is that Adelaide pulled a goal back to equalise in the 28th minute through midfielder Selin Kuralay.
Equalising, however, won’t be enough to stay in the race for a place in the final four; time is running out for the Lady Reds and a win against Sydney is a must!
Stranger things have happened in this beautiful game, though, and an Adelaide win this week is not out of the question. So if you-re a Reds fan get yourself down to Hindmarsh to show your support!
If you can-t make it to Hindmarsh this Saturday, this match happens to be the ‘match of round- and can be viewed live and exclusive on ABC 1 at 3pm AEDT.
