Dean Heffernan has named his extended Westfield W-League squad for tomorrow's historic Sydney Derby.
The first-ever Westfield W-League Derby at Bankwest Stadium sees third face second, but so much more than three points is at stake in Parramatta on Friday.
Sydney FC travel across the Harbour City having bounced back from their first defeat of the Westfield W-League season with a 2-0 victory at Newcastle Jets on Sunday.
Unbeaten Western Sydney Wanderers are well rested after a bye, and nothing will confirm their title credentials more than a victory against their local rivals.
The Sky Blues will be seeking to make a statement on enemy territory as Golden Boot leader Remy Siemsen faces her old club, while Amy Harrison lines up in Red and Black against her former teammates.
