With both competitions at the half way mark of the season, the Red & Black's sides will play Perth Glory in matches that could define both team's seasons.

The Wanderers will be aiming to collect all six points for the first time in a double header.

The high flying women's outfit will go in as strong favourites against a Glory side struggling near the bottom of the table, while the men's face a stiff test against the defending Premiers.

In his first season in a senior job, head Westfield W-League coach Dean Heffernan has got the team firing and headed for a spot in the Finals for the first time in the club's history.

The Wanderers have been branded as one of the most exciting outfits in the league thanks to their explosive attacking style of football and resolute defence.

There was a slight hiccup last week following a surprise 4-0 loss to Brisbane Roar - the Red & Black’s first loss in seven games.

But under Heffernan and his staff, there's no doubt the team will be quick to bounce back from last week's disappointment.

With four games left in the regular season after Sunday, a win is vital if the Wanderers are to keep up the pressure on leaders Melbourne City who have now opened a six- point gap at the top of the table.

The Hyundai A-League side also return to Wanderland for the first time in two weeks following a 2-0 loss away to Wellington Phoenix last Saturday afternoon.

The Red & Black were well in the game against the Kiwis for much of the 90 minutes but luck deserted them in front of goal.

The Wanderers will be hoping to find their mojo in front of goal in a match that would catapult them back into the Top Six with a win.

Currently sitting in eighth spot on 14 points, the Wanderers are just a point behind Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United.

While the results have been disappointing as of late, there is still plenty of football still to be played this season.

There are 12 games and 36 points up for grabs after Sunday's fixture - ample time for the Red & Black to make a run for the Finals.
