Adelaide United Women are sharpened and primed for their Round 12 clash with Western Sydney Wanderers Women in the Westfield W-League at Elite Systems Football Centre on Saturday.

Adelaide United Women are sharpened and primed for their Round 12 clash with Western Sydney Wanderers Women in the Westfield W-League at Elite Systems Football Centre on Saturday.

Following draws with the likes of Melbourne City and Canberra United, the Reds Women are edging closer to their elusive first win of their campaign, and will look to exploit the sixth-placed Western Sydney Wanderers.

Adelaide United Women’s most recent encounter with the Wanderers occurred in Round 3, in a close 2-1 defeat at Marconi Stadium, as Adriana Jones found the back of the net.

The action of the previous match day included a tremendous fight back against Canberra United which resulted in a four goal battle, and drew 2-2, courtesy of a brilliant Sofia Huerta brace. Meanwhile, the Red and Black’s suffered a 3-0 blow to Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium.

Adelaide United Women Head Coach, Huss Skenderovic is anticipating an entertaining match, and his side have not lost an ounce of confidence in their football.

“We have been playing really well recently, especially with the last two draws against Melbourne City and Canberra United, who are top teams,” Skenderovic said.

“We have a great momentum, and as always, we are confident, something that we haven’t lost despite our position on the table.

“We know the strength in our abilities, and we are an entertaining team, which has been proven over the season, with the amount of chances we have.

“If we weren’t creating chances and opportunities, it would be a worry, but with creation of chances, goals will eventually come, like for Sofia (Huerta) last week.”

Skenderovic believes with momentum and their last performance against Western Sydney Wanderers, their first win of the season is looming.

“We had the best training session this week, the girls looked really good and worked hard, it was the best I have seen,” Skenderovic continued.

“Western Sydney Wanderers have their strengths, but I believe if we play like we did at our last meeting with them, we could challenge for the three points this time around.”
