The outcome for this Saturday evening is simple for the 27-year-old - and it doesn-t matter who the opponent is.

“I want us to get the Premiership and I want to keep this run going,” Bridge said.

“I don-t care if it-s against Sydney FC or a friend like Danny Vukovic.”

It-s been a brilliant season for Bridge who made the move to Wanderers from the Sky Blues.

“It feels that little bit more special being here,” he said.

“I am from Western Sydney and I am enjoying my time.

“The coaching staff is honest with how they approach the game and players.

“It-s good for the club, and it-s just going to get bigger and bigger.”
