Foxtel Y-League Preview: Sydney Derby

The Western Sydney Wanderers Foxtel Y-League squad will be looking to bounce back this afternoon when they take on cross-city rivals Sydney FC at Nestrata Jubilee Stadium.

The Red & Black head into the match with a mixed start to their campaign this season. 

After a bye in Round 1, the Wanderers cruised to a 2-0 victory over Canberra United thanks to early goals from Mathieu Cordier and Kosta Grozos.

But the tables were turned last weekend when the Red & Black were thumped 5-0 by Central Coast Mariners, pushing them to fourth on the Foxtel Y-League Conference B table.


Sydney FC had the weekend off to prepare for the fixture and last took on the Mariners, playing out in a thrilling 3-3 draw.

The Wanderers will need to keep an eye on Sydney striker Jordi Swibel who scored the opener for the second week running as he hit the target after just ten minutes with a side foot finish at the near post for 1-0.
